Dear Family,

Our beloved brother and truly a loyal son to True Parents, Mr. Yukichi Tate has made his transition to the next world. We truly are grateful for his example over the years to all of the American movement. He and his wife greatly comforted True Parents through their faith and heart toward heaven.

We give our sincere love and support to Mrs. Tate and their three children. Mr. Tate's was most noted for his leadership and example as an MFT commander bringing the best spirit of faith, sacrifice and loyalty into the hearts of many of our elder American leaders and members.

We are grateful that we can celebrate such a life at this time.
