Connie, Linda, Paula, Tim, Becky, Janet, and Jason,
I would like to express my heartfelt sympathies to all of you and your families. Ruth was a very kind woman and our whole community shares in your grief. Her commitment to helping others is her legacy and appreciated by all.
I just learned of her passing and I am so sorry that I was not at the memorial service. Growing up with your family makes my absence even more regrettable.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know the days ahead will be full of many emotions, but, just think of it like the skin of an onion peeling away those emotions. Just want you to know I will be praying for you all. May it be a time of pulling together and forgiveness.
