Sich happy memories of going to visit Donnie, Sandy and Jess when we were home on leave. Had such a great visit with Ruth when she came to Crete Greece in 1977. Love and prayers to all the family. Rest in Peace Ruth. You will be loved and missed by many!

I was sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. Though our families haven't connected much in recent years, I have fond memories of both Carl and Ruth and the times they spent with my Mom and Dad. I seem to remember that playing cards together was something they enjoyed. We have pictures of family gatherings when Sally, Deb, and Sandi were little. Particularly, I'll always remember Ruth's voice. I saw Ruth often at Pinnacle and was sorry when she was no longer able to roam the halls and say "hello". My prayers are with you all.
