Ruth Trias was the essence of a beloved Nana. Her eyes twinkled with love and her gift of laughter was ever present. She adored family and especially children above all else and many a cat felt her kindness. If you were lucky enough to taste her cooking, you were in for a treat. A special holiday toast would be made with egg nog and Puerto Rican Rum. Her children and grandchildren all have special memories and stories reflecting her unselfish manner and loving heart. I was honored to feel her love, too and her family has my eternal gratitude. Thank you, especially to my dearest Angie, for sharing your mum. There aren’t too many guarantees in life but I knew whenever I walked through the door a hug and smile was waiting always. That’s everything, isn’t it? May paradise be yours, Ruth, with safe passage. Your time on earth was well spent indeed. The angels are going to love your dancing! 🌺
