I am currently taking my EA. In 1922 My Grandfather joined Trinity Lodge #502. He Passed in 1956. My Uncle (Mom's Brother) joined in 1952 and I cared for him until his death in 1999. I know on the outside he was rough and tough but his heart always shined.

Now in the year 2002 I have joined the same Lodge and I know now what he as well as Grandfather knew. I sit in the same chair that he sat in as well as my uncle. I can't put into words what it means to me.

I have a Great Teacher that is taking the time with me and he said I doing Great in my work. After losing Grandmother 09 Dec, 1968 and Mom 13 Dec, 1968 it was just Unk and myself for 31 years.

I encourage any man that needs to see what he has in Family to join. You will appreciate the family that you have. I only had my uncle and when he passed, Trinity Lodge #502 as well as the Bedouin Shrine stepped in during a very hard time and made it a lot easier.

100 years of tradition continues through me and I am so proud. Grandfather and my uncle would of been so proud of me... So Mote It Be
