    We always looked forward to visiting with Ruth each summer when we visit from
    Houston. She was a lady who personified greatness.

    My first try got lost. God Bless the family to have sweet memories. We were so blessed to have her as our neighbor and friend for so short a time. Please give me a call Kathy. Much love.
