When I get up these dark September mornings and take my seat at the computer I look out to see a lone bright star shining in the East. I like to think this is a message from my dear sister Ruth who passed just a few days ago. She is shining down on us – twinkling – all is well. She is at rest, in peace. And slowly dawn breaks. Another beautiful sunrise.
Ruth This photo was taken a number of years ago when she was still living at her beloved farm. The farmhouse was built in 1792 and lived in by 10 generations of the same family before Ruth and her husband Chuck bought it. Over the years it was the focus not only for the immediate family but for the wider circle of friends and family.
Among Ruth’s many interests she loved gardening, particularly flowers. So this photo taken on the side porch is most appropriate.
