    Dear Ken, Mark & Robin and Family,
    I am lost at words to say my condolences for Emily. I so enjoyed seeing her everyday at Ruth’s. She was a wonderful person and my prayers and thoughts are with you all during this time. I lost my Mother in April and felt a connection to you all now knowing what you all went thru. She was much too young but I am sure she is with Ruth and Ray and smiling down on us all. God Bless!
