    Eileen and I were so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth's death; we were both out of town and could not make it to the service. We really would love to visit with family but don't have addresses or phone numbers. Aunt Ruth so touched my heart when my brother Barry passed away and even though I had not seen her for sometime, she came to his memorial service. If you want to connect, I have provided my email address above. Again, we are both so sorry for you loss. She was such a sweet person with such a loving heart.
