Dear Slim, Joe, Wally, Barbie, Eddy, and Family:

Eddy, Ken, Kaitlyn, Kent, Austin, Slim, Barbie, and family,

We are so sorry for your loss. Ruth was such a wonderful person. I remember her getting us passes to Busch Gardens and being so sweet to all the kids in the Windy Hill neighborhood. We hope that warm memories of her will comfort you during this time of loss. She loved you all so much and will forever be your guardian angel.

With love,

Colleen, Scott and Patrick
