  1. Hello Gwen,

    My condolence to you and your family. As I was unable to visit Calling Hours or your mother’s Funeral, this seems the best way to offer you a hug and to share that you are in my good thoughts and prayers.


  2. i am so very sorry…ruth was such a wonderful neighbor and friend to my parents throughout the many years…i always admired her courage and strength after losing a son – i remember my mother sobbing into the phone after hearing the news and telling me nothing could be harder in life than losing a child. you were so brave, ruth…may you rest now in peace.
