One comment:

  1. I am so sorry to hear about Ruth. She was a very sweet lady and a wonderful Mother in law. I remember how much she loved her cats. Her and a Seth would go out to feed them. I remember the trips to the Tampa area with her. It was always a great time . She will be remembered. I am praying for both Roger and Larry. You both had a wonderful mother. RIP Ruth… Kiss my son, Seth and tell him he is missed.
