Flagstaff is more than a community, we are a family, and as such we take care of each other. Please consider donating to the Hanson family whose little Mason died this week. Funds are needed to help with expenses and to allow the family to take some time from work while still meeting their financial needs
  




In lieu of flowers, we ask our families, friends, and communities to find it in their hearts to help  in any way they can by donating to this fund.

Cards can be sent to:

Friends and family, tomorrow is Mason's service and reception. I can't begin to imagine what an impossible day it's going to be, but I wanted to thank you all again for your love and support.
The service will be at 1:00 at Mount Calvary Lutheran church. Freinds, please park at Sechrist Elementary down the road and take the shuttle to the church.
After the ceremony, friends and family will be gathering at the Hanson's home to continue work on Mason's Memorial Garden.
The Ski Lift Lodge is offering discounted hotel rooms at $49.00/night. Just mention "Hanson Memorial" when booking.
Thank you all again. Blessings to all.

Mason's obituary from the Arizona Daily Sun on 4/5/16:
Mason James Hanson our 22 month old “Panda Bear” was born 6-12-2014 in the cozy mountain town of Flagstaff Arizona. Just 660 days old he tragically passed March 31, 2016 at his home in Flagstaff Arizona.
Mason was born at Flagstaff Medical Center blessing the entire community with his presence. He had a contagious laugh, a touch that would soothe your soul, and a smile that would light up the darkest room. Mason enjoyed life; some of his favorite things were dancing, singing, going outside, riding in the car, snuggling, laughing, running, chasing, climbing, giving kisses, but most of all he loved his family. His best friends were his 5 year old sister Megan and his 6 year old brother Mikey. When Mason’s eyes opened in the morning he would instantly start yelling for his brother to wake up. “Mikey! Mikey! Mikey! Wake up!” he was ready to start the glorious day ahead of him. We believe that Mason faced each day knowing that his time on earth was going to be short. This clarifies why he was so perfect with the ability to change people with just one look, smile, or touch.
Our sweet baby Mason will be missed by so many. He is survived by his Mother Jessica Hanson, Father Michael Hanson, Brother Mikey Hanson, Sister Megan Hanson, Grandparents Garry and Pauline Hanson and Michael and Cathy Tongen. The number of the people who survived Mason is too long to list, you know who you are.
The celebration of life will be at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church on Sunday April 10, 2016 at 1 o’clock in the afternoon. Following there will be a grave side service at Citizens Cemetery. We are opening our home to everyone that would like to participate in the creation of “Masons Garden” after the service. Memories and condolences can be shared at www.norvelowensmortuary.com

Life is so fragile, loss can be so sudden, hearts can be so broken,.....in the wake of such a loss, we are haunted by things we don't, and may never understand. Yet the solace we seek may not come from answers. So we look for comfort in the belief of love's everlasting connection. May that love lift you and hold you close, and give you peace.

This is the most difficult time of this thing we call life. Know that your little one is in God's arms or grandparents or others who have gone before. He will greet you when your journey is done and will walk beside you always. God bless your family during this time. Love a fellow FNU CFNP.
