Bro Jerry,

Please extend out deepest condolences to Sis Gina and the family during this trying time. They are in our prayers here in Japan. I last met with Chuck and Gina on my travels to the Barrio back in 2006 and all we talked about were the kids being taken care of by the Shriners of Mabuhay.

For those who does not know what the Hiram Award is, you can click here or read the excerpt below:

"The Hiram Award is an award presented to a Master Mason who has served the Lodge and the Masonic Fraternity with devotion over and above the ordinary. It is the highest honor other than being Master of the Lodge that can be bestowed on a member of a Masonic Lodge.

The award consists of a Certificate and a Medallion. The Medallion has the Square and Compass with the letter G in the center all of which are encircled with a Laurel Wreath. Around this are the words "Hiram Award, Dedicated Service." The back of the Medallion has a representation of the Seal of The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of California."
