I'm so sorry to learn of Ruth's passing. She was a member of my Mother's Sunday School class at St. Mark's United Methodist Church. She was a dear woman with lots of spirit. I accompanied my Mom on many senior day trips and it was always a joy when Ruth was in the crowd. She was a special lady and will be missed by many. My prayers of peace and comfort to her family.

Deepest Sympathy from the family of Dan and Emma Wilson in Maryland. We remember her last visit to the Wilson Reunion in Maryland and how much we enjoyed all the family from Texas. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Sending our love to comfort all of you. Ken Wilson
