    My name is Patrick. I am from Dayton, Ohio and have recently applied to my local lodge for membership to this great fraternity. My Father was a 32 degree and really loved being a Freemason. He lost his fight with Cancer in Jan of 17.

    Long story short, I have decided to walk in his footsteps and ask to learn all this great fraternity has to offer. I have applied, secured my two signatures, and am currently awaiting the investigation team to interview me.

    I wanted to introduce myself to this community in hopes of calling you all Brother in the near future.

    Cheers and I look forward to learning from you all.

    Patrick

    Welcome to the forum and I’m sorry to hear about your father-
    We lost my Dad a couple years ago so if you need to talk just drop us a line.
    The craft is a beautiful thing, I’m sure you will do well.

    I am sorry to read of the passing of your Father and my Brother but am sure he would be very pleased to know you are joining the Freemasons, not just because of the Family Tradition of being a member, but because of what Freemasonry will call you to do; be a better man.

    Every success with your application. I am a long way away in Australia, but if you need any support, do reach out.

    Good luck! Make them coffee and tea...maybe some cookies! (Masons love food!). I’m sure you’ll do great.
