             I was recently reminded of a powerful message          Home is a wonderful place to be, and I am proud
          from an unlikely source.  Arguably one of the modern  of western Montana for keeping the home f re burning
          era’s f nest educators and children’s author, Dr. Seuss,  for me during the past 11 years.
          penned the following axiom of education:
                                                                  Hot Springs Lodge has af orded me the chance to
                     T  e more that you read,                 learn and grow as a Mason.  I have never lef  a lodge
                     T  e more things you will know.          meeting here when my constitution was not renewed
                     T  e more that you learn,                and my step lighter.  T  ey have been a fountain of
                     T  e more places you’ll go!              energy for me when the journey made me weary.  To
                                                               my Masonic family, I can only accept their patience
             As I close this chapter of my Masonic journey, I  and understanding during my absence from the local
          encourage everyone to apply the intent of this poem  activities of the lodge and chapter.  To those special
          to his relationship with Freemasonry.  And as I select  brothers who understand that words cannot express
          my f nal words, I posit this as advice and a request for  our relationship, I am certain you understand.  I trust
          the good of the order and the betterment of the craf :   you know my reciprocal appreciation of Masonry.
                                                                  Finally, to my family I say must say thanks for
             I would be remiss to not acknowledge the ef orts  the years of commitment that was given to the craf
          and support of the many that have made Montana  vicariously.  Although the understanding may have
          Masonry a superb experience for me.  While the list  appeared cloudy, the support and love was always
          is lengthy, I would like to recognize a few individuals,  crystal clear, without condition or appeal.  To Brandy
          and entities.  To begin, I would like to speak to the  and my boys, “I Love You”, I could not have labored in
          integrity of the craf  as a whole.  From corner to  the quarries without your assurance.  Collectively, to
          corner of this grand state, Freemasons still, as always,  all I say,  “T ank You”
          are the foundations of their communities and lodges.
          T  ey are practicing the arts of the craf  to better their
          towns/cities, schools, and counties.

             I have really enjoyed the travel and getting to
          understand the many wonderful brothers in the
          jurisdiction.  I have to acknowledge the Glacier and
          Missoula districts for their unwavering support and
                                                                                                             Page 5
