Dear Ron,

Please excuse the plain paper and pen. I now live in the Clinton Care Center and most of my ‘stuff’ is still in Ortonville.

I am so sorry over the death of your wife. All my sympathy to you. Sixty-eight is too young. And she had health problems for some time. That has been hard for you too. Wes often spoke of his concern for you both.

Thank you for your friendship for Wes anbd especially understanding in his last months. He is at peace.

Rog said you were at coffee. Great!

It helps, knowing that ones loved one is beyond  pain and earthly troubles. We also know that God loves each of us more than any of our family can and that Jesus paid the supreme sacrifice so that we will be reunited in a perfect world with Him.

God’s blessings,

Ruth Schneck

Clinton, formerly of Ortonville
