Dear Ania, and Family, May I take this time to extend my heartfelt sympathy to you all , George served as my Chaplain on the Grand Lodge Board, when I served as Grand Master. I choose because of the dignified and gentlemanly manner in which he always conducted himself. He was a credit to my board of officers, and i don't believe he ever missed a visitation. He will be sorely missed in his Lodge, and remembered for his traits of Friendship, Love, and truth , which is the basic tenants of Odd Fellowship ! Farewell Dear Brother until we meet again in Thy eternal Home. Sincerely , Samuel C. White, PGM
