    I was saddened to hear of Ruth’s passing. I was able to “connect” Ruth and Marguerite by the phone a couple of times, which was encouraging for both of them (and me). The 1st time, Marg said “Ruth” when she started talking and that was the first time I had heard her identify anyone by name….it’s a moment I will cherish. Marg is “holding her own” …I think showing some improvement. You will be in my thoughts and prayers!

    With Love,
