I will miss our last aunt of that generation.   I have fond memories over the years, especially after she married our Uncle Bill.  They came to Florida for their honeymoon and stayed with us.  As a 13 year old I was very observant of the affection they showed each other.. holding hands as they they took a walk.   Our condolences to Terry and Gary and their families as they grieve the loss of a wonderful woman.

I am sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. I sometimes would take the ladies out to eat after Sunday services and they loved playing bingo. She was a sweet lady. As long as she is remembered, she will live in your hearts.

Gary, Terry, and Families,
Mom (Janis Welsh) and I are saddened to hear of Ruth's passing. She was a sweet and kind lady, and a good friend to Mom ever since I was young. She and Mom spent many, many hours talking on the phone! The last couple of years, if Mom was napping when she'd call, she and I would have long talks which I really enjoyed.
We are thinking of you at this difficult time, and wishing you comfort, healing, and peace.
