I am so sorry to read of Ruth's passing. I worked with Ruthie for eight years at Tri County and she was a joy. I loved working the same days as her because we always laughed about something. My deepest condolences to the family.

Jerry, Rose and Children, I'm so sorry to hear about Aunt Ruth. She went through more than any Mother should have to bear. She was a wonderful lady and Bob and I loved her dearly. Make sure I'm notified when the service takes place, please. We were never notified of your father's passing, and felt terrible when we heard. My Phone No. is 716-938-6544 and I have an answering machine. Make sure I know ahead of time so someone can bring me.
