To all of Ruth’s family, I would like to express my condolences. Ruth was a part of my growing-up years, and a valued member of the church. I recall many Sundays, sitting beside the three windows at the church, while she taught our Sunday School class. She was a lovely lady.

I remember my grandmother’s box of rhinestone brooches which I thought were real. She would say it was “paste,” but that had no meaning for me. I knew she was a queen in disguise. I have learned from that and will keep trying to apply it to my life. Keep sparkling wherever you are, Grammy. I am sorry that we are all reduced by losing you.
