I am picturing the twinkle in Ruddy's eyes along with that hint of a smile. Ruddy was so patient with Bonnie's birding group. He sat through endless conversations about birds in Big Bend, Corpus Christi, Galvestion, and many more places. Ruddy was a gentle rock. I will miss you, Ruddy. Love and prayers to your wonderful family. Janet
