Ruth, you lived a good, long life. It was indeed a pleasure to know you those years we played bridge at the clubhouse in Rhinebeck. You and I were never afraid to open four spades and darned if we wouldn't make it! Hoping you get lots of trump in your next hand up above. Next time I play I will definitely remember our laughter and the sparkle in your eyes!
