Hundreds gather to mourn loss of Loves Park teen
MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. (WIFR) - Mason Bernabe was supposed to start his first job after high school on Monday.
Parking lots were packed near Olson Lake in Rock Cut State Park by people who came to share memories of Mason and all the things they will miss.
“He was the most charming, polite, and sweetest kid anyone could ask to be around,” a family friend stated in a GoFundMe page. The online effort to help the family with burial costs already raised more than $15,000.
Mason’s visitation is 4 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Sept. 21, at Sunset Funeral Home in Machesney Park. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Sept. 22, with his burial to follow.
