On page130 of my book it mentions a picture of my grandmother with her quilt that she made. That picture wasn't in the book but I will show you the picture here.

 

My grandmother made the quilt hanging behind them in this picture: the little hexagons are no larger than a nickel. She sewed each one by hand with the tiniest of stiches. She also hand-quilted every inch herself with the same tiny stitching. She gave this quilt to my mother JoAnne Walker-Long, in 1990

   Poem about John Walker  

Johnny Walker

A quiet and a humble man,

Who lives by principal and makes his stan'

One who lives at peace with God

And with mankind upon this sod.

 

Seeing that this world is fair,

Created by him who reigns up there.

That man should love and be as a brother,

As our lodge should treat each other.

 

Here is on that likes the tree,

The flower and mountain or raging sea.

One who knows God made it all--

And walks with him, lest he fall.

 

Johnny loves the mountain trail

And walks in sun or freezing hail

Along  the high and windy ledges,

or through the leafy, flowering hedges.

 

He's hiked the Appalachian Range,

And  seen the beauty and wonder strange

Of the hand  of "the greatest architect  of all"

That spoke into being this terrestrial ball.

 

He loves the creation which God has given,

From sun drenched peak to clear streams driven

But his fellow man--"the master stroke"

Johnny loves the most--if rich or broke.

 

Harry Truman, a fellow  brother.

Set the example as did no other.

Johnny saw a natural leader

and followed  him as an avid reader.

 

His books and articles and political notes

walker collected and complied the votes.

Now our country sees this, his friend,

"As one of the greatest"--the war to end.

 

Johnny serves as Master here

and like "ol Harry our ship did steer.

Along with the knowledge and example rare,

He led the lodge to do it's share.

 

Yes, Johnny speaks in softened tone

To Masonic Men who stand  alone

For what is right and good and kind

And all who seek that light to find.

 

Let each of us that"meet on the square"

Be ready and willing like "Walker" to share--

Of that which God has given to you.

Be that which you give a few.

 

Written for Johnny Walker by Dale Benedict

a brother from Kilwinng Lodge # 356 F&AM

Cincinnati,Ohio May 12, 1985
