1.  It is with deep regret that I report the passing of Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic (LGAR) Past National President Eleanor P. Lowe.  Eleanor died on December 12, 2012 in Arlington, MA.  She was a 60 + year member of Annie A. Gould Tent #1, DUVCW in Portland, ME.  Eleanor was born and raised in Portland, ME and lived a good part of her life in Arlington, MA.  She was a great asset to the Department of MA SUVCW and ASUVCW in planning the 2008 National Encampment in Peabody, MA.  She was also a longtime friend to my family.  Eleanor will be missed by all who knew her.  The funeral service will be held on Friday December 21, 2012, at the Douglas Funeral Home, 51 Worthen Rd., Lexington, MA at 10:00 A.M.  Interment will be in Forest City Cemetery, South Portland, ME.

2. We are already in a period of mourning and that will continue until 13 January 2013.  All membership  badges Camp and Department charters and the National website will stay draped in black until the above date.
