My life will be forever changed because I had the opportunity to know and love Ruthie. She was the essence of grace, compassion and love. Even in her illness and death she put others before herself.

I also wich to express my love and admiration for Michael. The care he provided for Ruth

was expert, compassionate and unfailing. His care for her was surely “love made visible”

Thank you, Michael, for sharing your Mother with me and touching me heart so deeply.
