    My heart goes out to all family members for the loss of Ruth.

    Death is so painful for those left behind. Memories can never be taken away of what a kind, gentle and caring soul Ruth possessed.

    There are no words -nothing can help however, a hug, which I am sending – lets you know others care and feel your earthy pain.

    God be with you during these difficult days.

    Of all the people I have ever met, Ruth was the person I admired the most. I remember her when she was a young woman– how she used to hold her head so high when we would walk to class together. She had such an excellent sense of humor. She was completely kindhearted and always generous. She had more integrity than anyone I have ever known. My deepest sympathy to the family.
