Our deepest sympathy to all of Ruth’s family and relatives. Our hearts go out to you all. Ruthie was my best friend and we did so much together, for many years, from day trips, shopping, trips, line dancing, lunches at the bridge, and walks on the paths. We are really are going to miss her. One of my besties that will never be forgotten.
Hugs, Sue, Michael and Chris Grant.
