I remember visiting many different times with Great Aunt Louise when she and Uncle Gene would come to visit Grandma Ritchey. Sometimes they came over to Salem where we lived to visit and sometimes we saw them at Grandmas house. I know she will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy. Prayers and thoughts are with all of you during this time.
