My heartfelt Condolences to Nick Cindy and Christine. Ruth will be missed. She was a very special lady and friend over the past 50 years and how lucky Eddie and i were to have known her. She had the most fantastic sense of humor who always kept us all in stitches. We, a group of 8, would get together on Saturday nights to play cards and what a hilarious time it was. When it was Ruth and Nicks Saturday night we could always look forward to Ruth's meatballs and sauce they were the best ever. I am sure that right now you are in Heaven and are keeping Eddie and Rick in Stitches....God bless you Nick you had the best and we loved that special lady. I will see you Ruth when i get there!!!
