    Uncle Max, Linda, and Mike.
    I haven’t seen you guys in so long, but please know that I love you, and that I am praying for the comfort that only God can bring in these times. Aunt Ruth was such a special person. I have many fond memories of our get-togethers, back when the demands of life weren’t tugging so hard at everyone’s schedules. Her sense of humor, and her contagious laugh never failed to tickle my spirit. I know that she will live on in our hearts, until we can join her again for good. Love you guys very much.

    Max, Linda, and Mike, I would love to be with you all now in this time of grief. Unfortunately, the current virus situation and my surgery prevents it. Just know that I am with you all in spirit and in love. Just know that when she closed her eyes here on earth she open them in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. I love you all and will be talking to you in the days to come. Please call me at anytime you want to talk. I am here for you.

      Thanks very much for the condolences. It’s pretty hard losing someone after more than 65 happy years. Good to hear from you after all these years. I’m trying to get on the green dragon facebook, but no luck so far. Had a stroke in 2007 that left my right hand impaired, so all the typing classes with Miss Roberts are all for naught.Drop me an E-mail sometime & let me know what’s new with you. Best regards,
