    I loved the time I got to spend with Aunt Ruth and will always remember this terrific lady. My deepest regret is that I didn’t have the opportunity to meet her earlier in life. She always brought a smile to my face with her humor and her positive attitude in her declining years. Will miss visiting with her and our dining at her favorite steak restaurant. She was truly a gem and I will miss her presence. I am certain that a great reward awaits her in heaven. She collected angel figurines and now she is with the angels. Love you, Aunt Ruth. Goodbye friend.
