    Ruth’s kindness to our daughter, Cynthia, will never be forgotten. She provided a safe place when Cynthia desperately needed a place to go and what a joy that is for our family to remember. Jim and I regret we won’t be able to attend her services but it does not diminish our affection for Ruth and our love always and deep sadness for sweet Andi. Of course our condolences are extended to Luke, her loving husband, and the rest of her family.
