One Condolence to Ruth Elva Rickard Heffner

  1. Shirley Wilkins Kucharski says:

    I have some great memories of Aunt Ruth. I had not seen her for four or five years, but talked to her on the phone after she moved. She came to Massachussets to visit me one summer. I always enjoyed seeing her at the family reunion. God be with all of you as you adjust to life without your Mother and Grandmother.
