    When I think of you I can only smile remembering all the fun we had playing cards at your place whenever I got to sleep over, or later on, having lunch when I was working around the corner from you. Your laughter was contagious! Love you, Aunt Ruth

    Shirley, Bob, Moe and Susan:
    So very sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth’s passing. She was a great lady and I will always remember her laugh. When I was taking my mechanic apprentice ship I used to go to her place for lunch sometimes and she always had a bowel of soup ready for me. We always had a good chat and it would always lighten up my day. Sending my thoughts and prayers.
