Ruth will be sadly missed by all of us. I will always

remember her — well groomed, not a hair out of place, and ready to go. Now she is in a place where there is no pain.

My sympathies are with all of you at this time.

We are so sorry for your loss. We’ll always remember Ruthie’s laugh, and the fun we always had when we were all together. I remember when I had finally grown taller than Ruthie. I’ll always remember our good times at Mascoma Lake with our “extended family”. Good memories are priceless.
