A Good Man Gone Home

(l to r) Kiereney, Grandma, Michael, Grandpa and Kelli at Michael's commissioning May 2008

Lester Lee Dwyer with his Masonic apron on after Masonic rites were held Friday night. Grandpa led over 200 Masonic rites in his lifetime, all from memory and without use of the manual.

God bless you as you continue your journey. You were a man among men and the best grandfather in the universe.
The picture next to him is the rocking horse he made his first Dwyer granddaughter in 1973 with her son, his great grandson, sitting on it recently.

Ness..I got your message. I'm sorry I haven't be able to call you back yet, but I hope all of you could feel me surrounding you with love and prayers. Our thoughts remain with all of you. And Austin is sending a little extra love your way this week.

Thank you so much for the beautiful post last week. I haven't been on the internet much other than to update my own blog and facebook pages. I am playing catch up now...and I am so moved.

Love you!!

I am so sorry for your loss. He sounds like an amazing man and I know he will be missed very much. May his journey onward be blessed with as much love as his was here on earth. Thinking of you and sending love and prayers..jj

I recall how fondly you spoke of Grandpa and I am so sorry for your loss, dear heart. It is NEVER easy to say good-bye to someone we love and care so deeply about, but to me, the separation is only temporary.

I hope that you are taking good care of yourself and Roger. Grieving is a process which can take a long time. Please be gentle with yourself. May you take comfort in the wonderful memories that you have of a wonderful man.

Hugs and love,
