Guest Book Highlights

November 30, 2016 "What a great loss to all of mankind. So rare that we find such a selfless and inspiring person who considers the needs of others before themselves. I am reminded of these words when I picture Mrs. Gruber..."Take note of the blameless one, And keep the upright one in sight, For the future of that man will be peaceful." Psalms 37:37. She is the epitome of those beautiful words. Her legacy will continue to inspire and stir the hope for a time when the whole earth will be filled with people like her. Psalms 37:29" - White Family (Atlanta, GA)
November 28, 2016 "My prayers are with you and your family."
November 26, 2016 "I am one of the refugees Ruth accompanied to the U.S. in 1944. I was 12 at the time and am now 84, but I never forgot the young and beautiful woman and her smile while she hefted her Leica, pointing it at anyone who caught her attention. My wife and I met her about 20 years ago during one of her visits to the San Francisco Bay area and noted that although she had matured a bit since 1944, she was still as young dynamic personally and spiritually as ever. This quality stayed with her to the day she left us.

We will never forget her." - Walt Arnstein (Cloverdale, CA)
November 26, 2016 "I am so sorry for your lost. What a difference one caring person can make. As you grieve think of how blessed you were to have her in your lives, the memories she left and the knowledge that all humans are important to God. (Psalms 103:13-17)."
November 26, 2016 "What a Magnificent woman , they broke the mold when she was born, graced with her presence this brilliant woman set for us an example which will not soon be forgotten.Your sorely missed Ruth , this world won't be the same without the likes of you. Rest in peace Ruth." - David King (Altamonte Springs, FL)
