  1. Dearest Ruth,
    I am so terribly sorry to hear of Reginald’s passing. I moved to Arizona in 2016 to be by my sister. Sadly, she passed in 2020. I miss my KY friends and think of them often. I always loved your beautiful Christmas cards and kind words. Prayers for you, David, Brenda, Regina and your precious grandchildren. Again, my deepest sympathy and sending hugs and thoughts from Tucson, AZ.

    In love and friendship.

  2. Aunt Ruth, it breaks my heart that I cannot be there with you today. I love you and Uncle Reg so much! Know that my love, thoughts, and prayers are with you, David, Brenda and their families. Hugs are sent from afar.
