    Dear Shirley, Bob, Moe, Susan and families:
    Brent and I send our heartfelt condolences.
    Aunt Ruth was a lovely lady and a special Aunt. She always made me feel welcome and she had a great ability to induce laughter. I will always remember her with love and fond memories.

    So very sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth’s passing. She was a great lady and I will always remember her laugh. When I was taking my mechanic apprentice ship I used to go to her place for lunch sometimes and she always had a bowel of soup ready for me. We always had a good chat and it would always lighten up my day. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Shirley, Bob, Moe, and Sue thinking of all you in your time of sorrow. Aunt Ruth came and helped Caroline and our family years ago in Belleville, Ont. She was always helping out, she was a good person. Hope to see you all soon. Love Errol and family.
