Lodge members across northern suburbs Melbourne would be aware of Bro. David Buckley who made a number of visits over recent years.
Bro. David, in a note this morning (Tues.) to Wor. Bro. Rahim Samat, tells of Coronavirus in the UK: Dear Bro Rahim:
“Like you UGLE has shutdown until further notice. I was hospitalized with breathing difficulties and diagnosed with COVID 19 three weeks ago but fortunately have been released since and am isolated and recovering alone in my home.
“While I have not been very well with this virus I thank God that I have been spared what others have suffered.
“While I was on ventilation for some time I have recovered sufficiently to be discharged home. Sadly, so far, 3 of my Masonic friends have died from this virus – one, in particular a man of such great heart and soul that we can be certain Heaven is better for his presence.”
