How do I properly honor my Grandfather
by Michele R. Fee

My Grandfather passed in 2010, I knew he was a Mason and made sure he had the Masonic rites and some of his Brothers from the local lodge at his funeral. It was then that I found out he was a Shriner and more? He was not a member of the local lodge, his Fez says Moracco, he paid his dues, donations etc... in Florida I would have to look where I sent what he requested while handling his Estate I can't think of it all of the top of my head. Not sure exactly what was ment because it was not explained. This is NOT my question as my Grandfather was ALWAYS MORE than most people knew. I would love to know if it would not dishonor him to ask. My Grandfather was a wonderful man who was misunderstood by most, to most he was a grouchy mean person who rarely "spoke" love to those of us who knew him well knew he showed his love in different ways he only told me he loved me twice in my 40 plus years with him, but he showed it regularly with his what I once thought to be silly gestures and over protective actions, I lived with my Grandparents in my teen years. Those of us that knew him well knew the grouch in him was more the pain of extreme loses and his experience in WWII. I dearly love my Grandfather and I want to honor him and to do so correctly. His fez, apron, book and a few other are still in my possession, heartbrokenly however his ring and other jewelry pieces werebstolen pawned & (supposedly melted down) before I found out where it was panwed. What I'm looking to find out is how do I properly display, if proper to do so, the items I do have. The book does say to return upon his death but i wad told by a local brother's wife (I believe) that was not necessary and I could keep it if desired. I guess my question is what DO I DO with these items that would not only make my Grandfather proud but also honor him? I did try to upload pictures but could not, I could email pictures or ?
