And so it has come to pass, a Brother Master Mason having completed all
the design's laid down on the Trestleboard of Life, has answered the summons
of the Grand Warden of Heaven and Earth and has entered into the Grand
Lodge over which the Supreme Grand Master of the Universe presides.
Although our beloved and respected Brother has passed through the portals
of Eternity, his passing memory will forever remain to inspire all who
mourn His passing to live life as he did, respected and depart this life
As one by one, the autumn leaves fade in the forest deep, So one by one,
in each of us must come the touch of sleep.
As one by one, the roses burst into the morning light, So one by one, our
soul will wake again beyond the night.
Soft and safe be the earthly bed of our Brother; may our Heavenly Father
protect him and enfold him in his arms with love. Until then, dear friend
and Brother , Until then - - - Farewell!
