  • I never thought of you as Ruth. I always thought of you as (Renee’s) mom. You were special and I so enjoyed our get togethers to make strawberry jam. You kept me and Renee in line and we knew that the sugar had to be measured exact, and you were right. We never had a batch that wasn’t just fabulous! I will miss you but I know that you are in a lovely place resting with the Lord.I pray that Renee and her family will find peace and comfort knowing this. May their greif be eased with loving memories.

    With deepest sympathies.
