Fred and Family, Miranda and I were truly floored to hear Ruth had passed away. Nothing but fond memories of her came flooding back. The time I spent at your home when I was a young lad, you and Ruth took such good care of me. She introduced me to Chunky Soup! Throughout my life, whenever I saw Ruth she always needed to be updated on what I was doing and how my family was doing. She was an excellent person, with a good heart and I will miss seeing her. May she rest in peace.
