MASON, MATTHEW EDWARD 24 - of Egg Harbor Twp., born March 22nd, 1990, left us entirely too soon on April 30, 2014. Beloved youngest son of Kenneth & Theresa Mason and little brother to Kenneth Mason Jr. Matthew was a complete charmer who had a great love for the outdoors. His primary pleasures were fishing, hunting, boats or just being on the water with his Dad. He also had great affection for ATV's and four-wheeling with his brother. Matthew enjoyed spending countless hours with his beloved mom-mom & pop-pop Brightly. He loved spending time on the beach with his fiance, Brittney and dogs Bentley and Sadie. Matthew was also a very talented artist who never realized his full potential. He was a member of the Somers Point Marine Unit for the past four years. Most recently employed as a landscaper with Ken's Quality Lawn Care of Egg Harbor Twp. Matthew's departure has been a devastating loss to all his family & friends.

Beyond the door, there's peace I'm sure, and I know there'll be no more tears in heaven.... I cannot express how incredibly sorry I am for the loss of your son. You are all in my prayers.

Dianna McCafferty

There are no words I can say, other than you are all in my thoughts and prayers, and Matty will live forever in your hearts, love never dies.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there - I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints in snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
As you awake with morning's hush
I am the swift-up-flinging rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there - I did not die.
