“Thank you so much for the Masonic Home of Missouri Widows Pin.  It is very beautiful and I will be proud to wear it.  The Masonic Widows Card is in my wallet.  My husband has always told me that if I need anything the Masons would help.  My husband recently, before his death, received his 50 year pin.  And I am so happy that I was married to him – almost 43 of those years.  Thank you again.”
