Truly a beautiful woman of God. A loving, caring, kind soul who treated me as her very own, taught me many things, helped me through difficult times, and loved me no matter what. She was always a shining example of one who loves the Lord and seeks to follow Christ day by day. We will all miss her very much but find rest and joy in knowing she is home at last and we will see her again in heaven!

My dear Aunt Ruthie. I am so happy for you right now. I know that you are seeing, walking, running and are with the love of your life and your family and loved ones. I enjoyed so much our talks, cards and letters. You are such an awesome christian example and encourager. My life is so blessed having known you. I will miss you dearly but am at peace because I know you are with Jesus. Love you Aunt Ruthie.

My Beautiful Grandma, you were the kindest soul on this planet. Your infectious laughter and warm smile and comforting embrace are a few of the many things that I will miss and long for often. There was a beautiful sunset last evening and a heart shaped cloud that hung around for a few moments, I know that you were sending me comfort as you watched over me. I will love you for eternity, thanks for being such an amazing part of my life. Give our loved ones a loving hello from all of us down here. Till we meet again.
