CandleMy thoughts and prayers go out to Ruth’s family. She was loved and she loved deeply. I had the pleasure of meeting Ruth and even shared in a meal at one of her favorite restaurants in Quincy. She has a lovely family and she will be dearly missed. Rest In Peace Ruth, you are home with your Heavenly Father for eternity, until we meet again~Peace.

I enjoyed every meal with Ruth during my time there. We sat at the table just us two. I truly enjoyed the many talk's we had. After I left and went home, I truly missed her. Rest in peace Ruth. Prayers for the family.
