She always made our tortured teenage souls feel welcomed and respected!! We were people to be valued. That was not a common outlook back then.
A smile crosses my face when I think off her. Made my life a little better....and that's a lot.

What a blessing to have been a small part of Ruth Farber's life. She was one of my mother Sarah's best friends for many years in Lynn, and a constant source of warmth, advice, and just good times. The Farber family is precious. Nancy and I send our sincere condolences and warm sentiments to you.
