Thank you, Aunt Re, for being my family and my friend. You made me laugh and your love and encouragement meant more than you would ever realize. I will miss our late night talks. I love you and miss you very much!

So sorry to see Ruth had passed away but I know she is having the greatest time of all seeing the Lord and all those precious loved ones and friends who were waiting at the gates for her to arrive! Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family a this time. She was a great lady and I know she will be missed by so many. Her message would be to make sure "you are ready" because she expects to see us all over there too! God bless and keep you all in his love and comfort during this time.
