Ruth was without doubt the finest lady we have ever had the privilege and honor of knowing. If ever there was someone who always found the good in each and every person she met, it was Ruth. She not only "talked the talk", she "walked the walk"! No doubt she is in heaven now with Russell. She will be sorely missed in this household.
