In Memoriam



We approach this solemn occasion in a spirit of reverence and solemnity, our hearts heavy with the awareness that never again in this mortal life shall we experience the warm spirit of friendship and brotherhood that these, our deceased Brethren, extended to us, but secure in the knowledge that they live eternally in the Grand Lodge above. Please note the dates in some instances are the date they were reported to the province, any amendments please contact the webmaster and we will gladly rectify.
