Dick and I want to express our condolences to your family. Ruth lived next door to us when we first moved here. She was a very loving and sweet person. I remember spending many days gardening and Trudy sitting next to me chatting. All you daughters were very nice to have as neighbors. Ruth and Gene were wonderful people to live near.
