   Les and I want to extend our condolences to you in the loss of your husband. Les just read to me the obituary in today’s newspaper. It is so sad all the good and wonderful people from our generation who have been taken from us far too soon. We will hold you in our hearts and prayers and hope to be able to see you in the not too distant future.

  All our love, Millie and Les Ruhl

Harri Joseph and all the people that are thinking of you in West Virginia

Sami and family,

We were deeply saddened to hear of Stephen’s death. We didn’t know him well, but we already miss his smiling presence walking the dogs. May you be surrounded by loving family and friends during this difficult time and onward.

Daryl & Jean (down the hill)

I was so sad when I heard that Steve was so ill. Pat told me he was in Hospice and I was very reflective of my experience a few years ago and how wonderful you were to John. Please know that my heart aches for you and when you are up to it we will get together.
