Ruthie was always such a bright spot in my day! I would be teaching classes at the gym and I would see her walking around and around the track fast as lightning. She would wave to all of the members in the class with a bright beautiful smile. I never saw her without a smile on her face.. I remember singing happy birthday to her and how she glowed when we sang to her. .I will miss her positive energy and joy. May you Rest In Peace .
