Please accept my condolences.
I spent my jr high & high school years at Primera Iglesia Bautista. One Sunday while walking in the corridor/ breeze way, I remember some people calling Hna. Ruth "Momo". When they saw me, they sneered at me and said you cannot call her that. A minute later, Ruth walked to me and said, " you can call me Momo if you want." I will always remember how nice Ruth was to me. She didn't need to say anything but she chose to include me. I felt un judged for a moment and so included. She was a very sweet person. I know such a lovely person will be missed especially by all those she touched by her kindness . I just wanted to share a good memory that I still carry with me today.
