The best and most beautiful things in the world can not be seen, nor touched, but are felt in the heart. Ruth made everyone feel so special and loved. Her kindness was evident in all that she did. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to meet her. Ruth will continue to live on in the hearts of those she touched and loved. With sympathy. Beth
