I remember how mrs. ruth would just zoom down the hallway. She was a wonderful woman with a kind word and a terrific spirit. She had a love for her family like no other i have ever seen. She was an amazing woman that was an inspiration to many. She will be sadly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
