Ruth and I were very good friends. I lost contact with her and the last time I saw her with a caregiver she did not know who I was. I have missed my friend, I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful woman and friend. Her son that played football at JF I also remember him. At that time my children where in the band at JF also. I lived in Hawaii for five year and we used to sit and talk about how beautiful Hawaii is. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. And may the Lord hold you in his loving arms. and remember she is in a better place.
Sincerely, from your friend in Christ,
J. Ofelia Angus
