Laurie, I still cannot believe he is gone. Sometimes I am home alone and I would feel some one touch my hair. II thank God for bringing us back together He will be my forever hero .I know he has no more pain and he is at peace. He is with Mom and his two brothers Robert and Frank. I can picture all of them being silly an mom giving the look. I am starting a journal for my memories to leave to the girls’ wish we were there with you just to hold you and cry. He was a great brother. There is 8 years between us. He would play games and such with me. I talk to him most of the day .My mom has all but two of her children here on earth My sister Jeaney and my self. Our hearts ache so bad I know yours does as well. We will get together go to Chellos and get chowder and 2 dozen clam cake lol And then to Newport Ice cream for dessert. Butch I will never forget you make sure when my train arrives you have a quart of milk and a 12 inch sub for my lunch. The teacher asked him does Ruth eat this everyday nomostly he says sometimes more mostly not. I am here for you Laurie any time any day.
Take Care be safe Gog Bless. Baby sister Ruthie
