    I am truly sorry for your loss, but happy that Ruth is finally at rest. Her quality of life had dramatically decreased in the last 6 months and she had to depend on everyone else for what she needed. This depressed her very much. I will also miss her.

    Nana,It seems like you were just here. Then all of a sudden you disappeared. Just remember you’ll always have a place in my heart. Even though it’s falling apart. Last time I saw you we laughed so hard. Now the last thing I did was cry so hard. Now that your gone I don’t know what to do.. But I’ll tell you this, I love you. R.I.P. I miss you so much.

    Ruthie I can still remember the day we moved in and there sat you and Joe in the garage. I knew from the minute you introduced yourself to us you would be our ‘Buddy’. We love you dearly and will miss you terribly. We will never have a better neighbor or friend like you . May you rest in peace and you will always be in our hearts. Love you ruthie!!!!

    We go through life so often, not stopping to enjoy the day. And we take each one for granted, As we travel on our way. For in our pain and sorrow, An angel’s kiss will help you through, The kiss is very private, for it is meant for only you. We never stop to measure, Anything we just might miss. But if the wind should blow by softly, You’ll feel an Angel’s kiss. A kiss that is sent from heaven, A kiss from up above. A kiss that is very special, From someone that we love. So when, your hearts are heavy, And filled with tears and pain, And no one can console you, Remember once again… About the one we grieve for, Because you sadly miss. And the gentle breeze you took for granted, Was just a Angel’s Kiss. Grandma, Your gentle touch and loving ways have filled my life with joy. Thank you for all your love and support. You will always be in my heart. And we will miss you! Love always, Danny, Beth, Matt and Mikey
