Baby Mason John Eplin Raikes

“An Angel in the book of life wrote down my baby’s birth and whispered she chose the book too beautiful for life.”

Heaven’s gain was our loss when our angel was called home by our Lord. Our beautiful son, Mason John Eplin Raikes, came into this world to soon and was taken too soon.

Mason, who was born and passed away on July 12, 2013, is cherished by his loving parents, Terra Delorise Eplin and Brandon James Raikes; big brothers Beau and Cash Raikes; maternal grandparents John and Kim Eplin of Morris; paternal grandparents Chas and Sue Raikes of Marseilles; and aunts and uncles Anna Raikes, Will and Amanda (Eplin) Marsh, Shelby Eplin, and Eric Wagner.

Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at the U. C. Davis-Callahan Funeral Home. Visitation for baby Mason will be for one hour prior to services. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery.
