  1. Gary & Dan,
    Our thoughts, prayers, and love are with you. Aunt Ruthie was a very special person. Without Aunt Ruthie and Uncle Jr., Kay and I would have had very different childhoods. We can never be thankful enough for them. She loved you and your families with all her heart and was blessed with love in return.
    God Bless!
    Kitty & Craig

  2. Danno, your mom was very special to all of us that had the opportunity to share time with your family growing up in the Big O. Your dad was extra special as well. I will always cherish the special memories with your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Gary. I love you my brother

  3. Gary and Danny so sorry to hear about your Mother. She was a sweet kind lady! May the Lord comfort you during this time of grief!
