I didn’t know Ruth but saw her picture in the obituaries. She had a beautiful smile and seemed like a sweet person with a great personality. I just want to be extend my deepest sympathy and comfort all those who will miss her with God’s promise of a restoration to life in a paradise earth in th near future. Please read these promises at John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:3,4; Psalm37:9-11

Ruth was my best friend in High School. We did almost every thing together. She would get her dad's car and i would disconnect the mileage so nobody would know how far we went. We went to Colorado after High School and she was there when I met my husband. She sang at my wedding. I did not see her often but it was a comfort to know I could. I will miss her so much. She was a good and loyal friend.
