  1. Such love Ruth had for her family and others. I remember helping her back in the day when we both lived in Mexico when she was a teacher. She would ask me to do drawings etc. for her classes. She always seemed pleased with my amateur work. She loved the Lord, her family, and lived a devoted life.
    Thank you Graceland Fairview for the wonderful care and patience you showed to all of us who are mourning my dear sister Ruth.
