On The Battlefield Song

From Jennifer farmer 12/04/06:

My name is Jennifer Farmer and Chris Mason was a very dear friend of mine. I would like to thank you for your website for fallen heroes. Chris was great guy who inspired me, made me laugh and made me want to be a better person. He truly loved this country, was proud to be an American and was glad to serve in Iraq to protect us from terrorism. One of the things that he said to me when he was home in October was, "Jennifer, if I never have anything but the clothes on my back, the truck I drive and a roof over my head, I will be happy and grateful for those things because we are living the American dream. Those people over there do not value life....they just don't care." When I count my many blessings, Chris is one of them. I was blessed to have known such a wonderful man. He will forever live in my heart and mind.

Chris held a strong faith in Christ; he valued his salvation, valued his family, valued his friends, valued his life and always had fun no matter what he did. He always made everyone around him smile and laugh. I never once saw him in a bad mood, I never heard him complain about anything. I ALWAYS heard him thank God for all that he was blessed with. I have peace in knowing that he is with our Father in heaven and is happier now than he ever could have been on this earth. I will forever cherish the memories I have of him and the great times we shared.

Please keep his family and friends in your prayers as the hardest part will come when we have to lay him to rest this week. I pray that God will give his family and friends the strength to make it through the service.

Attached are two pictures I have of him. I will get more from his father and send them to you. One is a picture of us at a rodeo about a year ago when he was home visiting from Ft. Bragg. We had such a great time that night!
I hope to hear back from you soon!
Sincerely, 
Jennifer Farmer
