Yesterday, our WM, Bro. Dusty Stoker laid down forever the working tools of life and moved toward that "house not built with hands, eternal in the heavens". As SW, I will be acting WM for the next 6 months until election. I attended Grand Lodge with Bro. Dusty only two weeks before his hospitalization. He was admitted with pancreatitis, and slipped into a coma within days. After a month of this, he was declared brain dead Saturday morning and was removed from life support. I just never really thought he would die. I expected every day to get a good report. Sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to. Anyway, please remember his wife and 14 yo son in your prayers. Thanks Brothers.
