My sister Ruth and I enjoying reading books. When one of us finished a book we would give to the other to read. She also enjoy playing canasta and would have a big smile on her face when she would win. She was very good. I love you very much sis and will miss you dearly. Now you can play cards with Mom, Dad, Maurice, Leo and Aunt Nola.
