resolutions were adopted:
WHEREAS, God in his wisdom has seen
it to remove from our midst our friend and faithful comrade, Wm. Tucker, of Co.
E 10th Reg. Ill. Inft., and,
WHEREAS, He has been from the
organization of this post a most exemplary member of the G. A. R., and in the
death of our comrade we recognize the hand of love, and we bow in submission to
the will of our Heavenly Father therefore be it
Resolved That while we bow in
sorrow, that in our meetings we shall see his face no more, we rejoice in the
hope that he has gone to join the G. A. R. above.
Resolved, That we as members of
Walton Post G. A. R. shall endeavor to cherish the sentiments of our beloved
order, and we keenly feel the loss of our comrade from our midst, but feel that
our loss is his eternal gain.
Resolved, Therefore that we extend
to the family of our departed comrade our heartfelt sympathy in this their hour
of affliction and bereavement, believing that God does all things well, we
humbly bow in submission to his will. A few more battles to fight, a few
more sorrows, a few more trials, a few more hardships to endure and we shall
strike glad hands to part no more. In God we trust.

be spread on the minutes of our Post, and a copy furnished the family of our
departed comrade and the Adjutant furnish THE NEWTON REPUBLICAN and Newton
