Aunt Hazel, Iam so sorry to hear of Uncle Rosswells passing. You have our deepest sympathy, I regret that I wasn’t able to be there to pay my respects in person. It was always a great thrill in my youth to visit with you and Uncle Ross. He was a great man in my book, a fighter and a man of honour to the very end. I love you both and again I regret I couldn’t be there with you. Love, Your Nephew, Artie Stone
