Relation: Friends for many years

Dearest Barb, Kathy, Sherry and family,
I’ve known your family such a long time being one of the Eaton’s crowd and always admired your close and loving bond. Barb, you spoke of John so much with such love and I know your hearts must be hurting tremendously. I wish I could see you to give a big hug but I’m in Cowichan Hospital and must send my love through my daughter Valerie to you. I also wish I could give words of hope and comfort at this very delicate time in your lives but please know I am with you. God bless you all and God bless John for thinking of the kitties and animals that always need our help. With love, Ruby

Relation: Barb is my cousin.

Barb, Kathy, Sherry and all of your beautiful family. My heart goes out to you all. I have wonderful memories of John when we were teenagers. He also got me interested in planting tomatoes. I couldn’t believe how wonderful his home grown tomatoes were. I wish I could be there with you all. Sending you all love!
