Dear Kristin and family,

I was so sad to hear about your mom. Ruth and I spent many hours together caring for my grandchildren. I loved her dearly. She was such a loving and generous woman who made an impact on everyone in our family.

Please know that I share in your sorrow.

In deepest sympathy,

Trudy Rains

I know words are of little comfort, but your memories and the love that you were given will be. I am so sorry for what the family is going thru now. I know her parents and her brother & sisters were there with her heavenly father to welcome her home. You are all in my Prayers. Kimberly Brenneman Broughton.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Ruth’s family and friends. Star Heishman is my sister-in-law and my family and I were lucky to meet Ruth through her. Ruth was a wonderful person and will be truly missed!
