  1. Dear Tucker, My thoughts and prayers are with you during this transition. I pray for good memories to brighten your days as you travel this journey of grief. Please be kind to yourself. I enjoyed knowing Robert and working with him over the past 2 years.

  2. Tucker,

    Clearly Bob enjoyed living back in WNC and closer to you these past two years. I am grateful that you two were able to spend time together. I will miss working and visiting with Bob. Sending you thoughts of peace.

  3. Dear Tucker,
    You don’t know me, but I was a preservation friend of Gaines’s; we worked on projects together when I was with the Western Office of Archives and History. I probably spoke to you in the receiving line at the back of the church after his funeral; those are so awkward. I am sorry you have now lost two wonderful brothers. I saw the obituary in the paper and just wanted to pass along my sympathy and peace. Martha Fullington
