I have fond memories of Friday nights going to your mom and dad's home to shoot pool after grocery shopping. Well...our parents shot pool, and Steve and I watched. We always had fun! Your mom was a sweet woman, and always a joy to visit with.

What a strong, amazing woman Ruth was. I had the honor to work with Ruth at Atrium. Despite so many physical problems she had such an upbeat outlook on life. I learned a lot from her & I'am truly blessed to have had Ruth as a friend the last years of her life. May God give Ruth a peaceful long deserved rest. To her family my deepest sympathies.
