Ruth was my next-door neighbor for the past 15 years and we looked out for each other. We were amazed at how similar our backgrounds were - strong German heritage influence, Lutheran, school teachers. We enjoyed visiting over a glass of wine for me and a martini for her. Life was more limited these last few years, which made it especially hard for her. However, she is now with her lord - such a blessing. Nonetheless, I will miss her. I wish I could come to her funeral to honor her, but I have to work so I will be there in spirit.
