Marcia and Mark. I am so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I was so happy to see you while you were home with her Marcia. It had been a long time. Please keep in touch. RIP Ruth.
So very sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. As a volunteer at Hospice I enjoyed my time with Ruth; I held her hand and we visited about life. I truly will miss her. We had a couple laughs and I appreciated her wit and how sharp her mind was. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Family of Ruth and Bob, we have so many good memories of your parents. Ruth and I were the best of friends. In school years ago they would seat you alphabetical in which we sat one behind the other with Sherman, Slate all through high school. We graduated together and lived close to each other in Clayton.Best of friends. She introduced me to my husband of 69 years. I have been thinking of her for the past few weeks but we are just getting over Covid so pretty much stay in. May she be at peace.!

Mark, Marcia and families and the Sherman family…so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth’s illness and her passing. Right now memories bring tears, but there will be a time when memories bring smiles.
So sorry to hear about Ruth’s passing. She was always very sweet and also very opinionated! Had waited on her through the years at the old B and D market, banking and fuel companies where I worked.

Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. Fond memories of your mom and dad. Your mom made some great food also. She seemed to enjoy coming to my brother’s house for Thanksgiving also. I enjoyed her company.
