    I am so fortunate to have met you Ruth, a most beautiful lady. Your soothing and gentle nature are undeniable. Thank you for inviting me into your home, sharing wine, cheese and your delicious baked goodies. I had so much fun playing cards with you and Don. I will always remember you for your graciousness.
