My deepest sympathy to the Ruza family. I recall Girl Scout meetings at your house with lots of laughter and oh so much fun. The photo of your mom attests to the fact she laughed a lot; she certainly looked young as a result. Sending you wishes and prayers for strength as you endure life without her beautiful smile.

I am so very sorry about you mom's passing. I have so very many good memories of Marg and the Ruza family growing up on Sherwood Ave. How she could laugh! Always lots of food and fun- the favorite neighborhood house! I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for sharing Margaret with us. The stories you told about her always made me smile and laugh. I will never forget the day I met her and how spunky she was - exactly the woman I pictured from the stories! Thinking of you all during this time of sorrow.
