We have sweet memories of dear Ruth at Glasford Baptist Church. We sat in front of her many years ago, and she would keep our kids entertained when they wanted to act up. She was always so kind and loving and a friend to all. We look forward to seeing Ruth again in that great someday, when Jesus returns for His own (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
