Not sure what to say?

Blessed be! Shalom!

"Fred stopped coming to his classes at St. James Cardio/Pulomonary Rehab Center, Olympia Fields, about six months ago. Those of us who attended class with him were very saddened to learn of his passing. With a slight, boyish mischiefness about him, he was a very sweet, deeply caring person, whether speaking of his wife or his deceased cat. We miss him. We send our sincerest condolences to his family.

It is with much sadness that I read of Mr. Ruhe's passing today. I am a respiratory therapist and he was a patient of mine. I always saved him for last so we could talk. He had wonderful stories and it was a pleasure to speak with him. In some ways he reminded me of my own father, the same generation and all, and I grew very fond of him. My condolences to the whole family, and Mrs. Ruhe, he was sure in "crazy" about you. He talked about your long beautiful marriage. God bless you...
