Ruthie, Brent, Curt and Todd,

What a sad time this is! We are thinking of you very specially and wish we could be there with you. We have such cherished memories of your mother, Ruthie and all the great times we had when she visited you here in California, and when we visited her in Pennsylvania. She was such a good person, so vibrant and kind. (She spoiled us!) But the most special thing of all, as you know … her family was her heart.
We loved her, and she will always be endeared to us.
With our deepest sympathy to all of you and to Lorreta and her family.

Love from Phil, Floi, Danny, Daryn and Miyoko

I remember your Mom driving me home after a day of working in the hay wagon at your farm. We were in the back seat together. She turned up the rear view mirror to give us our 13 year old privacy. She treated us as adults. I will never forget her.

To Mable's family, you are in my thoughts as you grieve for her. Prayer to
God will help you to cope with her loss. Pray to him for help because he
cares for you.
