I met Ruth in 1952 when we worked at Time-Life; we soon became close friends. We lost contact after I moved to Florida and then to Leiden in The Netherlands. On a visit to New York around 2006, I visited the new Time Inc. headquarters on Sixth Avenue-- and ran into Ruth in a hallway.she had been visiting a reunion there! We exchanged addresses, and when I returned to Florida in 2009, I phoned her in New York; ever since, we have talked on the phone several times per month. I never knew Lou Kunin; I both preceded him and revived my friendship with Ruth after his death! I was shattered by her sudden passing, but also grateful trhat she could not have suffered long (We last spoke a week or so before her death.) Long since, I came to realize that she was one of the kindest, most even-tempered persons I ever knew. I had planned to visit her briefly in June en route to see my son, Pieter and grandchildren in Noord Brabant. At 89, I accept mortality, but hope to meet her on "the other side"Love to you all, George Winius (long-retired historian, Universities of Leiden and Florida.

I will miss her lovely voice and amazing laugh! You were an inspiration to all you met---especially me!
Love you my dear Aunt Ruth,
