Brother William Franklin Kinnick

May 23, 2019

The roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason has not answered to his name.  He has laid down the working tools of the Craft and with them he has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use.  His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluities of life, thereby fitting his mind as a living stone for that spiritual building – that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has sought admission to the Celestial Lodge above.
