    Sorry to hear of Ruth’s passing. I thought a lot of Ruth and how she helped me through my business carrier. She was a wonderful friend. I am sorry I did not keep in closer contact throughout these past years. It is hard to find someone with the honesty and integrity of your Mom. She will be greatly missed. Until we meet again Ruth – God be with you!
