    We are so sorry for your loss. Ruth was a sweet lady and always kind to me. I can’t imagine how hard it is to say good-bye but I know you will rejoice in celebrating her rich long life of 91 years! I wish I could be there, but know I am in love and prayer.

    Ruth was a saint and always treated me like one of her own grandchildren. I’m blessed to have met such an amazing woman with a great sense of humor and nothing but love to share. I will never forget riding the Pirate Ship with her and Aunt Marian at Kings Island with their little rain bonnets on. Sarah and I send our love and support.

    God Bless,
    Brian and Sarah
