By Rob Morris

'Tis good to feel ourselves beloved of men
To know that all our anxious cares and sighs
For others' weal are given not in vain,
But treasured up in grateful memories
How light the toil for those we fondly love!
How rich the wages grateful spirits prove!

But when those men are Brothers, strongly bound
By bonds indissoluble, sweet and true,
When gratitude springs out of sacred ground,
And prayers are mingled with the praises due
Ah then, toil is no burden, gifts no load!
We have full recompense for what's bestowed.

'Tis thus with you, my friend: the voice of all
Yields willing tribute to your high deserts
But from the Craft there comes a stronger call,
From that great Brotherhood whose chain begirts
The broad world round, the grateful wages come,
Whose price is Honor and whose favor Bloom.

Long may you live in Bloom and Honor, long,
To show the Christian in the Mason's guise!
In Strength Omnipotent may you be strong!
In Wisdom Heavenly may you be wise!
And when to Death's dark portals you shall come,
May Jesus banish all the fear and gloom!

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!

My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.

Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!

Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
