In addition, Mason shared: “Ever since I left school you always wanted me in work and I tried my best everyday to go because I know I would be expecting a phone call.
“You would always check on me everyday no matter how bad your day was, you would keep it strong and I am so happy for that.
You gave me the best 19 years a boy could ever ask for.
“I will try so hard for you dad and I will look after mum and Hollie forever like you always told me to.”
Mason concluded the emotional post, saying: “I wish I could thank you for everything you done for me. You gave me the best 19 years a boy could ever ask for, I will love you forever dad until we meet again.”
