I was sorry to read in the Star Herald of Annie Ruth's death; I'd thought of her recently and intended to give her a call. Now I have to send her a prayer to heaven. We Cain chillun loved our McMillan cousins and know her family holds their own precious memories close. Katherine Cain Gould

Somewhere there is a picture if her running from the iguanas- on one of our cruises - she was adventurous. Another trip up to Hershey, Pennsylvania she was put on a roller-coaster-like ride , she was daring. We had a midnight buffet- she tried all of the chocolate. But she was ready to go to her eternal home; no pain and totally healed!
