Congratulations Brother…. This is a well deserved honor. Thank you for the dedication you have to Hickory Lodge #343. As you know, we Masons are taught that brotherly love extends beyond the grave and certainly the efforts you made this year to contact each member of our lodge and offer strength for many in their times of need will far exceed any rational attempt we could make to understand the results.
Many members and their families have contacted the lodge through the year, and me directly, indicating the arm of support, offer of help, listening ear, and general good will you have spread by the Trowel of brotherly love and affection; that cement which unites us all.
I am grateful for everything you have done and I am very proud to call you my BROTHER!
