You are all in my thoughts and prayers.  I have such wonderful memories of Kathy's Aunt Ruth - especially at Halloween and other holidays.  May your memories sustain you in the next few weeks.  Love, Marla and Bill.

I met Ruth and Martha in 2003 when I was travelling across the US doing genealogy research.  Ruth and Martha welcomed me into their home and shared our family history with me. We have kept in contact since. I again visited them in the summer of 2006 and spent an afternoon at their new residence at Kingston Residence.  Ruth was such a beautiful person, a "jewel" of our human society. She will be missed.

Dear Chuck and Martha,

We send you our love and our sympathy in the loss of your sister, Ruth.
We are cousins. My parents were Earnest and Vivian Converse and LaMoyne Converse was my uncle. They often spoke of all your family. They are deceased. We recently moved from Marion County to Fairfield County.
We are thinking of you at this time.
Donna Converse Lawrence
