Ruth was a very special person.
She was very thoughtful and alway looked for the positive.
She was quite the dresser, with her beautiful matching hats and suits.
She was a very hard worker, I learned a lot from her example.
I’m grateful to have known her.
She was a wonderful mom and grandmother and great grandmother.
She’s resting now.
She lived a long wonderful life.
She will be dearly missed.
