I couldn't have had a better friend that what I had in Ruth, she was definitely a great friend. I will always cherish the memories I have of her, she was more like family then a friend. I will miss her greatly. I pray for peace and strength for Bill and the rest of the family.

Bill & Family, all of you are my thoughts & prayers. Ruth is & will be loved & missed greatly. She was always a fun loving person & could sing, I loved hearing her sing. I remember as a teen when Pat & I would plan on going to town or somewhere sometimes we would jot down to Bill & Ruth's and she would laugh at us when we would tell her what we were up to..then she would try to be the adult and tell us--girls you shouldn't do that or no you don't do that & if you do better be careful & so on. In the mean still laughing at us too. So funny she was!! Later in years would enjoy hearing her sing at Karaoke at different places & visit & have a good time, she was always smiling or laughing. Love ya Ruth!! R.I.P. My Friend you will be loved & missed.
