So sorry to hear about Ruth’s passing. I always enjoyed talking to her and to Carl as well. They were such good people. I got to know them through the pizza shop and really enjoyed it when they came in. I really got a kick out of Ruth and her sister when she was in town. I know you all have a lot of great memories of her. Sorry I could not make the services. I will be thinking of you.

Dorothy & James Stout - Apr 9, 2016

So very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
She was a special lady. Loved her painting and her sense of humor. We will not be able to
attend the services but know you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
