    Love you Aunt Ruth.

    I so enjoyed getting to know Ruth over the years. She always made me laugh — she was so Irish with her self-deprecating remarks. She was sweet and kind. She loved her family with every bit of her being and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life. God speed Ruth! My love and prayers to Mikie, Andi and their families.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a great lady. She raised 2 strong daughters and enjoyed her grandkids and great grandkids. She is now with no pain and where she can watch over you all and enjoy watching all of you become the wonderful people she new you would be. She is always with you in your heart and in your memories
