I am sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. Your mom was such a welcoming individual that loved to chat, always made you feel at home, made you think you were one of her kids, and share part of her heart with anyone that walked in the back door of your home. She would always take a hello and goodbye hug and if she didn't think something was right she took off her filter and stated the facts. May she be wrapped in the palm of God's hand and rest in peace. She was integral to my formative years and I so appreciated her loving guidance.
