Little John, I loved you like a brother we had some great times and memories at Morrison Lodge. You really made Masonry enjoyable for me and I'm sure our brothers would say the same. I'm honored that I'm able to call you my friend and forever greatful for your teachings. Even though I'm in Oklahoma you can put your worries away I will be there to take care of Janet the best I can. Enjoy your new journey with The Great Architect of the Universe. SMIB
