    Love to R L and all the family. So sorry we cannot be with you today, but our hearts are with you every moment. Ruby was my precious sister-law and R L my dear brother, you mean the world to me! Carl sends love and prayers as he recovers from surgery. We have a hope in Jesus and He never fails to comfort and hold our hand when our heart aches.
