    Jerry and Ruby:
    Rob’s kind heart was evident the first time my husband and I met him at the apartment he shared with our niece, Kristin, in Seattle. Kristin glowed when she talked about him and Mya was so much her father’s daughter that you could see his smile in hers and the twinkle from his eye shining in hers. As you journey through this time of sorrow, we are holding you in our thoughts and our hearts.
    With our care and love,
    Marybeth and Bill Maury-Holmes
