I just heard of Ruth’s passing. Your family were so wonderful to my Dad and I after Mom passed. You and Ruth opened your arms to me when I was growing up. I remember hammering nails into the main floor of your home when you were building it. The mini bikes that we drove through Pine Grove Park when you lived across the street. The roller skating in your basement with Steph on rainy days. I have so many wonderful childhood memories thanks to you and Ruth. I can never thank you both enough. I send you all my love and prayers. It would be nice to think that Ruth and Mom are doing some long awaited catching up.
To Bob and the family.
Sorry to read of Ruth’s passing.

Dear Bob, Stephen and Anne and family,
I just read Ruth’s obituary and my heart goes out to all of you at this sad time in your lives. Your hearts must be breaking at your tremendous loss. However, you have the assurance that Ruth loved her Lord and there is no doubt in my mind that she is happy and healthy once again and is with Him in Heaven right now. Her soul lives on and she will let you know that she is still very much alive in little ways that will help you to know this. Treasure the good memories of her and don’t get so stuck in your grieving that you can’t move forward with your lives. Ruth would want you to be able to continue to laugh, live and love again as time goes on.
My love and prayers are with you all!
