Peter, Bev & Terry, I was very sad to hear about the passing of Aunt Dorothy. My parents are Alfred & Donna Ruttan (2018). Every time we would go to North Bay, we would stop in and see Aunt Dorothy. She was always so kind and friendly to me and when I got married we exchanged letters for several years. My father and I are very sorry to hear of her passing and wish we could be there to give our condolences in person.--Amy Ruttan-Knox & Alfred Ruttan (London, ON)
