Those who pass on God keep in his memory because he cares for them sorry for your loss.

My sister, Dixie Cowen, was her neighbor for many years. They enjoyed so many laughs, glasses of wine, trip to the theatre, music on the green and concerts together. Often, they would call me to tag along. Ruth was always so supportive and truly enjoyed the company of my sister, me and my children. My sister passed December 5 and that was hard on all of us. Ruth and Dixie had a signal to let each other know that they were up and moving around by placing a flag outside their door each morning. I believe they are sipping wine together, wherever they are and no more flags outside the door. God's peace be with you all.
