How fortunate we were when my wife and I moved to Florida some 18 years ago and right next door to the Schlesinger family. A big move like this could not have gone better. We were blessed to have known Ruth, Sue and Richard. She will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

This is the time to celebrate the life of a truley great woman. The world is a better place because of Ruth. Incredible wife, mom, grandmom, thinker, doer, supporter, and role model for everyone of today's generation. Yes, a treasure lost to us but now in a place that forever welcomes our best. All our love to the family.
