I am so sorry to hear of Ruth's passing - she and I connected on Facebook several years ago, and it was wonderful getting to know her all over again. We kept a fairly regular correspondence. She was a good friend to my mother years ago and to me in the past few years. Her humor and lovingkindness will be greatly missed. You have my sympathy and prayers.
