Although we find we must part for now makes me completely blind with sadness. Knowing my faith will sustain me until we celebrate that grand reunion with the best brother anyone could ever hope to have gives me just that much more to look forward to. To a gentle man that never in my life have I heard say an unkind word to or about another person, One that would give his shoes and go barefooted to comfort another... I say I love you " Doc" and give "grand" a big hug from me. "Jim." To Ruth You have always been like a sister, we have so many happy memories, and you were a good wife to Oscar, taking such good care of him and he so cherished you. I can just see him looking at you with such warmth. To Blaine, Chris, Stacy and Brian. ..He loved you so very much and he instilled values that you will carry with you always.
Each of you are kind, gentle and humble young men so very much like him. To Joy, Angie, and Wyona what special daughters in law. He spoke so warmly of each of you and you were so good to him and to Ruth. I know that you will continue to take care of her just as Ruth in the bible. To the grandchildren each and everyone of you were the "apple of his eye." I love you and will always be here for you Aunt Elaine
