Dear Ruby,

Diane and I were saddened to read this morning of Colvin's passing. You all were terrific neighbors for nearly 16 years, and we have missed you since you moved. To say Colvin was a good man is definitely an understatement. He would always stop me when I was walking with a good and kind word. We had a few laughs at those times over the years, and we often saw you working in the yard keeping your place so neat.

Our thoughts and prayers will be with you in these coming days. I hope I make 92. Dad did, and Mother almost 95, so maybe.

Much love and affection,

Bob & Diane
