Dear Donna and family, we were sorry to read of Ruth death in the P.O., and wanted so much to attend her funeral, however we will not be able. Elsie is awaiting heart surgery in the next few weeks and we are avoiding this cold and crowds. You know how much we loved Ruth, her sweet ways, and her love for all of you and us. Our prayers will be with you as you put Mom next to Dad. She was such a lovely lady, We talk about her when we go the Greenvillage Restaurant.
