After the 2012 Fall Conference we began to publish the names of members who had crossed the bar. Due to space constraints we have moved the names of those who died at an earlier date. In memory of all those who have been a part of District 26 we have created a permanent record that may be viewed here.

And memories a lane,
I’d walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again." Author unknown
