Known the Rodgers family a very long time. Dale is a very long time friend. Ruth use to get baseball tickets and Dale and I went to see the Reds play. I went to sleep behind home plate. I guess they had me on the monitor. So sorry for your loss. Ruth was always good to me.

Ruth was a mother to me when I needed one. As one of Jenny’s friends growing up I spent a lot of time at their house and she was almost always smiling, shaking her head at something I said , or being a solid stable figure in my life that I could count on. While time flies and we can loose touch and the people we love, the memories will never leave along with the lessons they taught us and the love they gave us. Thank you momma Ruth! I love you always.
