I lost a very special beautiful caring Aunt this weekend who put up with me every summer as a young child growing up. I so enjoyed my visits in Napan each summer and staying at the Searle's cottage was always so much fun. Aunt Ruby always made me feel so welcomed and defiantly spoiled me a lot. Love you Aunt Ruby and will miss you so much .
