Dear Aunty Barbra and family

It is with a heavy heart that I send along our condolences to Aunty Barbra and her family on the loss of Uncle Orville , having lost my father (Jim) very recently I have a good idea of how you are feeling. It had been awhile since I had seen Uncle Orville, but I remember any time I had he was always a happy go luck guy and was always interested in what was happening in our lives-then recanting his. He was always interested in helping others, I suppose thats one of the reasons he became a fireman. That broad smile was always infectious and his heart endearing. I hope he’s up in that big blue sky, playing golf on the lords course with his brothers and sisters. The Woodruff family sends out its thoughts, hearts and prayers to you Aunty Barbra and your family in this time of grief and sorrow .  
 From your Nephew Greg, Ellen, Ryan, Sarah and Sean Woodruff, may god bless and take care of you.

Orville really was a true gentleman. It has been years since I last saw him but still, to this day, I chuckle remembering him giving us crap for something we no doubt deserved worst for...
