    I am just reading this now. Because I have not heard from Ruth in so many years, I was under the impression that she had passed away. My heart goes out to you all. Bill was a good man and I am so happy to have known him even for such a brief time. I wish with all my heart that you are well. You were all so kind and loving to me when I visited that long ago summer. May Bill’s memory bring comfort to you and memories of gladness now and always.
