  1. I am so sorry about Ruthie. I really just got to know her this fall playing dominoes. I knew her from Eastern Stars. Will miss her.


  2. Jeff, Tim, and Kim,
    It seems your mother had a good life, and I’m so happy about that. I enjoyed my time teaching with her. Good memories for her good nature!
    You have my condolences for your loss.
