Dear Ruth Ann It has been a long time - I have currently moved back to Wooster. I was saddened to read about the loss of your husband. I read that he had been in Hospice Care. I pray that his suffering was not a long period. I hope you and your daughter Nicole ( this is my daughter's name, also) will find comfort and peace in your Faith, Family and Friends. Before COV19 I had made plans to contact everyone I could and have a type of Beauty Center Reunion. I have 53 addresses, sad to say I didn't have yours. This is not the way I like to contact friends - BUT---3303455577. Take Care and God Bless YOU and YOURS. Shirley
