Memories

We are so sorry for Ruths passing--I know you will miss your mother. I just wanted you to know what fond memories I have of Ruth babysitting us every Friday during the summer. She was always so kind and the riced potatoes she made were fantastic. Ruth was one of the kindest people you could ever meet. Throughout the years I have often thought about the stuggles she had in her life and how amazing a person she really was. Mom passed away in January but I know she thought of Ruth as her friend.
