Pat and family,
So sorry to learn of Ruth's passing.
I was your mailman a while back. It was always such a joy to see you and Ruth together. The look in each of your eyes when you looked at each other showed the love you both enjoyed for so many years. The Lord truly took an angel home.

Uncle Pat & Family,

We were all saddened to learn of Aunt Ruth’s passing. She was one of the kindest, warmest person I knew. Many of the great memories of my childhood were times when we would visit everyone in Warren. May God be your strength during this time. You are all in our prayers. Mom, Barb and Mary also send their love.
