I worked with Ruth at the Knox office of the telephone company. RD was born before we were transferred to the Plymouth office. So I know Ruth brought him in to the office so we could see him as a little guy. I remember her being so proud of her "little Bobby". So sorry you all have to suffer this sadness now. I hope your great old memories and photos will help you through this grieving period. Cosider yourself hugged and I will be praying for all of you.
