How about Thank You!!

I'm a female, 56 and my daddy was a 32 degree mason. He passed away in 2010. I have been to many masonic funerals in my life. They are the most humbling, loving, dignified funerals that I've been bless to grow up seeing. I don't understand freemasons and I'm okay with that. My 69 year old brother is a freemason also. I just wanted to thank those of you that take the time in preparing the great men I grew up with in my church or my hometown in the final days on earth. Thank you for the good things that go un-noticed. I know my daddy lost his farm, his land got rented out from under him at age 50. People came out of the woodwork to literally help us get back on our feet. Angel's come in all forms whether you think so or not.

Thank you,
C.Dean

Wow!

Such a touching bit of family history, ma'am. I wish I could say that you are welcome on behalf of all Masons, but nobody speaks for us all.

All I can do is to say a most sincere thank you from me - and blush a little.

You take care.

God bless.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Making good men better IS the REAL secret of Freemasonry. Although our lodges May be in different jurisdictions, and our methods may differ slightly, Freemasons enjoy a true family environment every where we go. We are welcomed with open arms at lodges all the time.

Most of us, myself included, have requested that when our time comes to go to the "Celestial Lodge on High," that our brothers seed us off with a Masonic funeral. We tell our families, and our closest friends, and they agree to see that it is done.

A Masonic widow has but to make 1 phone call to a designated person, who her late husband has left the number for, and the designer, makes the necessary calls. The widow, within a few short hours, has masons, some with their wives, at her home, taking care of everything that she might need. As beautiful as the funeral "service" is, the brotherhood shown to the family is second to none. The widow is given numbers to call, and wants for nothing in most cases.


I apologize for the rambling, but it’s all part of the funeral, and it’s parts
