Tom, Catherine, & Michael,

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Ruth. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. I kind of lost trace of you folks after you left Beverly, but you were always in my fondest thoughts. You were always a great family to work for. Ruth was such a kind caring person and I know you will miss her greatly.
