Elizabeth,

You and your family have certainly been in my thoughts and prayers. Your parents were wonderful friends to all the Browns. I always looked for them when I went to Shiloh. I will miss them there. But my memories of Julian will include their beautiful yard.

I know this next year will be very hard for you and your family. It is good to talk and totally OK to reach out for help. Please take care of YOU!!
Sincerely,
Phyllis Brown Rettig

I love you, Aunt Ruth. The weekends I spent at your house with Elizabeth (Lizzie at the time!) meant so much to me. You were always so sweet and I loved your cooking. Everything was so fresh and clean and smelled like bleach - which I loved! I will never, ever forget you!
