Need thee so?

Speedeth all to their rest.”
Thanks to all Sir Knights for their help with the funeral services. The families expressed their great appreciation for a job well done.
Sir Knights have been taught that we are born to die. So, let each of us make preparations for our death spiritually, legally, and Masonically. The Grand Lodge of Ohio has provided a form called Masonic Last Rights Request Form. It is located in the Grand Lodge Website, freemason.com, in the members portal within the Grandview system under Resources contained in the Resources/Form tab. This form will aid your families with the Masonic service of your wishes. If you need help locating this form, our Secretaries, Recorders and Heads of Bodies can assist you.
