Dearest Williams Family

I only met Ruth a couple of months ago in Kindred but in that short time she made such a difference in my life and in the lives of my parents.  My family and I felt so fortunate to have Ruth as our room-mate in the nursing home but more importantly as our dear friend.  It shows that no matter the point at which you are in your life, you can make such a difference to others.  What a gift it was to have Ruth in our lives.  As my Dad says, Ruth was a great lady.  We will miss Ruth and always remember and treasure those days with her.  

In hearfelt sympathy.
