    I would like to send my deepest sympathies all Ruth’s family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. I will always remember my Grandma for the special smile she had. I know she is smiling down on all of us. No words can be said about losing a loved one, especilly a wonderful, loving Grandmother. I will always remember the many good times as a child I had with her. Ruth will be remembered for the wonderful cook she was, mine was her pork roast and homemade apple sauce. As a child I always looked forward to her mittens and socks she would knit us to keep us warm. Gram you will be sadly missed by everyone. I will miss her dearly, as I know many others will. I am so very proud to have called her my Grandma. I love you.

    To my Mom. There are so many things to remember you with. From the many times I watched you rocking one of your children late at night to the hours you spent at the stove cooking for all of us. The many days when we arrived home from school to find the fresh baked breads, pies, cookies or whatever you managed to fit in your busy day. The times you sat and played cards with us and made us the special Spanish Rice that we all loved. Getting up so early on those cold winter mornings was a normal thing for you. You always made sure the furnace was well filled and the heat was flowing out of the vents by the time we got up.
    Mom, today is your anniversary, Nov. 9th, and I know you and Dad are together once again. So cheers to you both. You are the best, Mom. I truly miss you so much right now but the many fine memories will ease the saddness and bring a smile to all of us. You are the best, Mom. Love you so much.
