Your mom was the sweetest most loving lady. And she was a true lady. So glad I got to visit with her on Minturn before she moved. I believe God takes only the very special at holidays and she was the most special. Love to you all.

Dear cousin Sheryl, & family,
So sorry to hear about Auntie Ruths passing. She was a sweetheart.
Remembering the family cookouts @ my late parents house in New Bedford, Mass. & all the fun times camping on Cape Cod.
I know my Mom will welcome her to heaven with open arms filled with lots of hugs & love.
I can imagine them singing & dancing .
All my love, Kathie

When Sheryl and I were in High School, I remember sitting around the dining room table, having long conversations with Mrs. Spiegel. She always seemed interested in what we were talking about, and would offer input to our discussions. She was a very sweet lady, with a kind heart and love to spare.
