Always Admired & Idolized My Late Grandfather
who was a Freemason
by Louis Co
(Las Vegas, Nevada )
I first gazed upon my grandfather's huge photograph of him wearing his Masonic apron along with the symbols on them & with a sash has fascinated me as an 8 year old when I first saw it in our ancestral home.
His military haircut & slim fit body with a stern look on his face struck me as a man of great importance & well respected without even knowing nor hearing the word, Mason.
Growing up, I've always wanted to be a Freemason. I was told by a Freemason who's a friend of my late father's, that if I love helping people, then Freemasonry is for me.
Without telling me this I've always known myself as a loving & giving person by nature. I understand that in order for one to help another & others I must be able to.
Even at the age of 42, i am determined one day to knock at a lodge. I'm most specially proud of my grandfather who served humanity with charitable works for the poor of the Philippines & such heroism noted specially during WWII for saving lives when the Japanese attacked & tried occupying Gu Lang Yu island just off the coast of Xiamen city in the Fujian region of southeastern China.
He was one of the original land/homeowner's of the said island & is also known as the peacemaker / mediator between land owner disputes. So, with his legacy which I am proud & have always idolized, I wish to be a Freemason soon.
