Onwards And Upwards!
I suggested we make the presentation outside the Lodge so his mother could witness it. However, the Brethren had other ideas. They put her in a chair, and they carried her up those three flights of stairs so she could enjoy the presentation in the Lodge room. One of those Masons that helped carry her was a Midnight Freemason--Greg Knott. After the presentation, they carried her back down again.
I've seen many remarkable things during my time as a Freemason, but it never ceases to amaze me the extra mile Masons are willing to go. It meant a lot to that 50-year-member to have his mom be there to see him receive that award. And it meant a lot to mom to be able to enjoy that experience upstairs, in the Lodge room, with the Brethren of that Lodge.
I've seen a lot of Master Mason's raised, but that was a first. I've ever seen a Master Mason's mother raised before!
