Ruth was a grand lady, I enjoyed many visits with her over the years.
My thoughts are with Tricia and Randy (and their families)

My sincere condolences to the family. The first year without your loved one can be so hard to face, but the love of family and friends can carry you through. Please lean on God for comfort during this most difficult time because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6,7).
