To have met and know Eileen & Ralph and their children so many years at TFC. You kids were blessed with special parents. It's been a while since I saw Eileen at Doris' home just north of Indy and we were able to have a nice visit. So today I am praying for you guys as you celebrate her life. May your memories of her be clear and lasting. Rod & Marilyn Ruberg
