I show my deepest sympathies, and my deepest sorrow. But, I do have an idea though. If Appak cannot post to us, why cant we go to him? like through a medium or something?
"Hitherto I had participated in the terror of my guide. I had been so amazed at Albert's being alive, that I had not inquired if this was possible. I had even forgotten that death had bereft me of this dear and precious friend. The emotion of the magician recalled to me that all this was very strange, and that I had seen only a spectre. My reason, however, repudiated what was impossible, and the bitterness of the reproaches of Cagliostro caused a kind of ill-humor, which protected me from weakness. 'You feign to have faith in your own falsehood,' said I, with vivacity; 'ah, your game is very cruel. Yes; you sport with all that is most holy, even with death itself.' [Consuelo Proporina]
"'Soul without faith, and without power,' said he, angrily, but in a most imposing manner. 'You believe in death, as the vulgar do, and yet you had a great master---one who said: "We do not die. Nothing dies; there is nothing dies." You accuse me of falsehood, and seem to forget that the only thing which is untrue here is the name of death in your impious mouth.'
"'You are about to tell me that he died during the conclusion of the marriage ceremony. I will, however, tell you that he is not dead, that no one, that nothing, dies, and that we may still have communion with those the vulgar call dead, if we know their language and the secret of their lives.'" [Count Cagliostro]
(P.B.Randolph, The Supreme Grand Master of the Rosicrucians of the World, 'Seership')

If no one else will say it, I will -
Anyone facing death should understand that we don't have a long list of 'choices' for where we spend our eternal life. There are only two choices. Masons don't have a special 'hell' or 'Heaven' - no more than any other group of people.
There is a hell. And a Heaven.
God created both.
God is your Creator whether you choose to believe in Him or not.
Jesus is your only Savior, whether you choose to accept Him or not.
I do extend my sympathies towards the OP for his recent news - but I can't, and won't, sit here and ^5 him like we are sitting at the bar throwing one back.
This is your soul you are playing with, my friend. Don't let mankind, or any other secular entity, rob you of your eternal salvation - you have a few weeks? It's never too late - I pray that you make your choices wisely.
I pray for Jesus Christ to find you, and change your heart.
