Every day, I am thankful for each and every one of you. Thank you for the messages, the meals, the fundraisers, the support in every fashion that we could ask for, that we so desperately need. There is not a large enough "thank you" to demonstrate the gratitude that we have for each and every one of you and how you have supported us. Please continue on, even just to check in, we need it crave it, look forward to it, it is not an intrusion. It helps to keep the mind from wandering or to hold us up in a moment of "down".
Some of you have passed on dreams of Ruthie Lou or how she has "visited" you or continues to bless you, please continue to do so, it brings us such joy to see that she is continuing to touch you, even now since she has physically left this world. We are not always in a position to respond but your words comfort us in ways you can't imagine.
We will be celebrating Ruthie Lou's life on Thursday, October 6th at the Hoffman Ranch Picnic Grounds in Geyserville. Cloverdale folk, you know this as Geyser Peak, same place, new name. Please join us to honor our angel, celebrate her life and support the community that she has created. We are looking forward to seeing you and hugging each and every one of you! If you would like a copy, Ruthie Lou's obituary will be running in the Press Democrat this Friday (9/23) and will also be available online for the following 30 days.
Thank you for being such an important person to us and a special person to Ruthie Lou. We love you so much.
