My deepest sympathy Mac, Damien, and Alix, on the passing of your wife and mother. I remember fondly her unseen presence supervising teenaged get-togethers at your home many years ago. I feel blessed to have worked with Ruth as she mentored my independent studies at the U of A. She taught me many strategies about working and reading with children that I continue to use today. Mostly, I remember her passion for education and learning. My prayers are with you. God Bless.
