    To the Family of Ruth Herron:

    We are the son and daughter-in-law of Rosie Pierce, and took care of Ruth's yard for several years. As you know, Rosie and Ruth were very good friends and up until recently with the advent of Rosie's declining health, they got together quite often to visit, have dinner and enjoy each other's company. We got to know Ruth quite well during this time and became quite fond of her. She was always happy and positive and always spoke of her husband, children and grandchildren with pride. As our mother, Rosie is in convelescent care at this time and can't attend the funeral, we want to express our most sincere condolences for the loss of a very sweet and kind lady. We will all miss her very much. In sympathy, Cliff, Angela and Rosie Pierce
