Norman E. Haslop

Brethren, please join me in mourning the passing of a Brother of Dover Lodge. Norman E. Haslop put down his working tools and passed to the Celestial Lodge Above on April 13, 2015. Masonic services will be held at Murray Funeral Home, 173 South Main Street in Creston OH on Friday April 17 2015 at 7:00pm. Please come out to pay your last respects to our fallen Brother.

Solemn strikes the funeral chime! 
Notes of our departing time, 
As we journey here below, 
On a pilgrimage of woe. 

Brothers, now indulge a tear, 
For mortality is here! 
See how wide her trophies wave, 
O’er the slumbers of the grave. 

Here another guest we bring, 
Seraphs of celestial wing, 
To our funeral altar come, 
Waft a friend and brother home. 

Lord of all, below, above, 
Fill our hearts with Truth and Love. 
As dissolves our earthly tie, 
Take us to Thy Lodge on High.
