So sorry to hear. She will greatly be missed by many. I truly miss the days I used to pick her up for church on Sunday evenings. She always had a beautiful smile and always full of laugher.

She will be missed beyond words. The most unselfish, giving and caring woman I have known. Knowing she is with Jamie gives us peace. Rest in peace Ruth, until we meet again!
