Our prayers go out to the family. David and I enjoyed visiting Ruth at the Assised Living. Ruth was a wonderful and loving lady to be around. Ruth will be missed by many of us.

We so enjoyed bringing books and visiting with Mrs. Nowlan over the last few years. She was always upbeat and beamed with pride when telling stories about her son, the helicopter pilot. Even though she stopped reading some time ago, we stilled popped in to say hello because she was such a joy.
