I never had the pleasure of meeting COL TUFTS, but I have my CID credentials that he signed and I'm very proud of them. Behind every great man, there was a wonderful woman. Being married to him for 60 years, following him all over the world on his assignments and travels, you just know she had to be a superior Lady. I thank God that I had the privilege of serving in the CID Command that he was so instrumental in forming, and I thank Mrs Tufts for the support that she provided to the Colonel, during his formation and command of that organization.

Just checked in. Sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Tufts. I did not have the pleasure of knowing her. But I never doubted that Col. Tufts had an excellent Lady. I doubt he could have been the inspiration to so many of us that he was without her.

I can't believe that there has not been many condolence comments about Mrs.Tufts passing in that, while you may have not known her personally, multitudes of you knew Col. Tufts and it would be proper to give your condolences to the Tufts family. Do it, now!

I knew Mrs. Tufts--Uncle Henry's bride and she was a doll. They had invited me to their home for meals several times in Springfield, VA, during my 2 tours at HQ. I used to meet them on the road in and around Spreingfield after Col. T retired. We lost a true Lady. May she rest in peace with Uncle Henry,

May her and the Boss rest in peace together again. God bless them both.
