    You all are in my thoughts and prayers. You have wonderful memories to keep your hearts full and keep a piece of Ruthie with and always. Ruthie was a remarkable woman who loved her family deeply…I think she passed that trait along to all of you! I feel blessed to have known her. Thinking of her will always bring a smile to my face.She was the best !! Love and big hugs to all. Donna
