Dear Mariner Family,
Our family is truly saddened by the loss of Ms. Ruth. Such a wonderful friend, support and confidant to my grandmother. Ms. Ruth was such great fun with her wit and love of good conversation. Ms. Ruth's energy was contagious and inviting. I would be remiss in not mentioning her apple cake that my family loved and adored. The recipe was in high demand among the Jackson, Charity women. One could go on about the greatness of Ms. Ruth, a woman that wore so many hats and did so many things. The obituary crafted in many ways said it all and was simply beautiful. It was its own testimony to her wonderful spirit and such accomplishment.
Celebrating Ms. Ruth's life and memory today, our long time family friend will be so very missed. Prayers and thoughts are with Ms. Deborah, Mr. Douglas, Mr. Joey and Ms. Esther. We love you all.
