Deepest sympathy to the family of Gay Tucker. I recall the last meeting of our commandery he was pleased at my progress in learning the commander's role in the Order of the Temple, which he had been performing for many years, not only for our commandery but for many others. It will be a great challenge to carry on without his hep and guidance, but we will do our best.
John Leland Eminent Commander, Clarksburg Commandery 13 Knights Templar.
