Please accept our sympathy at the passing of Ruth. Ruth was bright and courageous person, it was sad to hear she lost a hard fought battle with cancer. Although we hate to lose her, we are glad she didn't have to suffer any longer. Please accept our warmest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ruth’s family who must now accept this sudden reality. I hope good memories can help ease the pain of this loss.

I am so sad for all of the loved ones Ruth left behind. We will all miss her forever until we meet again in Heaven. She was a great friend, fun co-worker (many many years ago) and a very special strong and courageous lady. May God bless and comfort everyone who mourns for her. Especially her sister Mary (my best friend forever) who took care of her so lovingly - we should all be so lucky to have someone care for us like Mary did for her sister.
