Brother Gary,
I am so sorry to hear of the untimely passing of your dear wife Ruth Ann. I'm so glad I had the pleasure of meeting her on our little trip to the mountains a few months ago. May God wrap you and your family in His loving and comforting arms like only he can during such a difficult time as this. Psalms says that his favor lasts a lifetime, weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Ruth Ann was a sweet lady whose friendship I valued very highly. My heart is both saddened by her departure from this life and greatly encouraged because her place in heaven is assured at Christ's return. One day, when we are all gathered together in the presence of the LORD Jesus, I'll see her again and I very much look forward to our reunion! Praise God.
