I remember when I would come over to the sand pit and help Mr. Gee with things around the property. He would let me help work on the tractor, feed the cats and other tinkering around. He also would let me ride my dirt bike motorcycle all over the sand pit. I saw him as a fine upright man that had tremendous respect for all things and people. In 2007 I had been investigating becoming a Freemason (for approximately six years). I was looking at the Webb Lodge website and saw his name. I called and spoke with him and he told me his story of his becoming a Freemason. He said that when he joined the Lodge it was in his Navy uniform. After speaking with him about this I knew that there was nothing shady about the Freemasons and it was not a "cult." I joined Burleson Lodge #649 later that year (2007).
Rest in peace my Brother, you were an inspiration to myself and many and you taught us to walk perpendicularly and act uprightly.
Your work here on Earth is done, my Brother. The mallet of death hath called you from your labors. May you obtain a blessing and everlasting rest in that Spiritual House, not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens.

M.M. @ Burleson #649 A.F. & A.M.
May the square form our conduct through life; the level and plumb line remind us of our condition, and teach us to walk perpendicularly and act uprightly. May we enter apprentices to virtue; be fellow-crafts with charity; and always masters of our passions.

I will never forget the Tractor ride he gave me in a field in Arlington that was referred to as the "Bush" beside Lloyd Park. TB and Ecile blessed me with my first plane ride on Ozark airlines which flew me to meet them for a weekend in Fayetteville, AR. We together saw "the Passion Play" and the short weekend will forever be etched in my memory. I have a lot of good memories of TB and Ecile that I will always cherish. Thank you for your unconditional love that you shared with so many people. May God be with Ecile during this time of sorrow as with all the their family.

I first met this smiling man in the Security Office at LTV. Don't remember the circumstances of the meeting but somehow Mrs. Gee's helper in the dining area of Methodist Hospital in Oak Cliff came up. I told him my husband had a nanny when he was growing up by the name of Florence. Sure enough it was the same person - the nanny and Mrs. Gee's helper. We had something in common. We shouted hello each time we rean into each other. Gee was a fine individual and I know you will miss him terribly. The one thing I never wanted, was to be a widow. God bless you Mrs. Gee. I hope someone reads this to you if you do not have a computer.
