W. Brother Ron Wilson will be seriously missed as been a fine example of a long suffering servant leader in our Masonic Fraternity.
An old man going a lone highway,
Came at the evening cold and gray,
To a chasm, vast and deep and wide.
Which he must cross without chart or guide,
The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
The sullen stream had no fear for him;
But he turned, when safe on the other side
And built a bridge to span the tide.
“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
“You are wasting your strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day,
You never again will pass this way.
You have crossed the chasm deep and wide,
Why build this bridge at evening tide?”
The builder lifted his old gray head,
“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,
“There followed after me today
A youth, whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been as naught to me,
To that fair haired youth, may a pitfall be.
He too must cross in the twilight dim,
Good friend, I am building this bridge for him.”
I think that poem is an illustration of our Brother’s purpose in life. He has worked long and faithfully. He has built his bridge that others may pass, and now he has gone to receive his wages from the Master Builder.
To those of the immediate family and friends, who are most bereaved at the loss we have all sustained, we offer our heartfelt sympathy.
Fair thee well, good brother!
MT
