Dear Steve, Terry, and Family,
I know that I knew your mother even before I connected with her through the Friends Church. But all the way through, she was so sweet. And she was both generous and gracious with the people she taught and ministered to through the Byhalia Friends Church. It has been a long time since I've seen you, but I pray that you will find comfort and strength in the Lord during this time of loss.

Dear Steve and Terry and families,
My heart is so filled with love for your mom.  I am so sorry and I know mom and dad are as well.  Your mom was an angel !!  She was so active at the Friends Church plus throughout so many dinners. The last time I saw Ruth was when I was home for Tom's passing.  We gave each other the biggest hugs !!!  I just thought about her last week.  I am so sorry for your loss.

You have our deepest sympathy for the loss of Ruth. She was a very loving caring person. She was a good friend & neighbor to my Grandpa & Grandma McIntosh. She was always there if someone need help. I always think of her everytime I make her oatmeal cookies. Our community lost a great woman. Hugs to all.
