With deepest sympathy in the passing of your father, grandfather, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. My late husband and I worked with Tucker at the Suffolk post office.

I have many good memories of times spent with NT on the White Marsh Road. He was a fine person and a true gentleman. He was very respected and well loved by his family and friends.
