Dear Aunt Ruth, Little did I know when I called your house and left a message Thursday morning that Uncle Bill was in the hospital. I realized when I received the e-mail Thursday afternoon why you weren't home that morning. Aunt Ruth,we are so sorry for your loss.  We won't be able to be there for the service but hope to come in the next couple weeks and will see you then.  Consider yourselves hugged. We love you.
