I just today learned of Mrs. Ruth's passing. I only met her once but she seemed to be a dear lady! I would always think about her as I passed her house every day. So sad to hear she is no longer there but grateful she is at Home with The LORD! Sincerest condolences to the family! Keeping you all in thought and prayer!

I know Heyward is smiling and was happily waiting for Aunt Ruth to join him in heaven. I can just see the celebration going on up there now. So glad to have her here on earth all those years but Aunt Ruth go rest high on that mountain and God Bless your soul. You were much loved.
