Condolence & Memory Journal

I had the pleasure of being Ruth's homebound librarian a couple years ago. Visiting her was always a treat as she LOVED to read. Agatha Christie was a must for her. She was such a sweet soul and she will be missed.

Ruth was a sweet and funny lady who always treated everyone kindly. I have only good memories of her visits to Florida when she visited Ruby and our family here. God Bless her and her family during this time
