Not sure what to say?

I am so sad we won't have our long talks anymore.. But to imagine you dancing with Jesus and not be in any pain is more than i could ever wish for you.. I will always remember our great times and sad times we had together.. You always said we had to always stay best friends cause we both knew to much about the other.. My long-time-long distance-best friend!
Love you, Nettie

We will always have great memories of Mrs Ruth. She was always willing to lend a helping hand, loved her family and was always there for a friend. You will be missed dear Lady.

My sweet sister Ruthie will forever be in my heart. My only sister and the memories I have. I miss you more than words can say and my heart is so broken but know you are walking and running free of pain and suffering. You are my hero and fought hard. I love you my sweet Ruthie - I miss you.

In loving memory of my sister/friend. I will love you and miss you always.
