  1. May your heart know the comfort, the peace, the assurance, and the hope that are found in Christ alone. With my deepest sympathy.
    (I met you and Ruth in the donut shop several years ago when we go there before church.)

  2. So sorry to hear about the loss of my sweet friend Ms. Ruth. I will miss hearing a voice calling in to the morning show on KIVY and I will certainly miss on those special treats she made for us.

    May your great memories comfort you all in the very sad time. Love to all.

  3. Memaw,you had a heart of gold and always let me talk your ear off. You welcomed Joanna and I into your home and fed us your famous chicken and dumplings and your German chocolate cake among other things. You and I jokingly talked about you adopting me when my Mama went to Heaven.I still remember that heart conversation. I love the Jesus loving woman you are. I will keep my memories of you fondly in my heart and pray I can continue to share my love of Jesus and memories
    of you with others one meal at a time.
