Much Love baby sister...see you again soon. Ty.

To the Sweet Maples Family,it was good to see some of you I had not seen since my childhood. I have great memories, of Bro Charles being my pastor at the Loretto First Baptist Church, as a child and sweet memories of fun times with Ruthie. Later in life, Rusty and I got to know Marcia at Faith Church in Florence, and I always enjoyed getting to see Ruthie then when she visted with Marcia, and got to keep up with the family through Marcia. Even though it has been
aleast 22 years since I...

Brother Maples, my family and I were so very sorry to hear about Ruthie's death. Mrs. Peggy, Ruthie and you are very special to our family, and we share your sorrow. We are praying for you, and know that you will find comfort in your memories and in knowing that Ruthie is with her mother and our Heavenly Father.

My Darling Ruth--even though we were only together for a short time, we became very close, as you will always be my daughter in my heart. We shared many fun times, long conversations, hugs and kisses. The day you put the sticky note on my desk saying "I love my new mama" was especially special. I love you with all of my heart and someday will see you again. I will always hear you calling me "Mama" and that is so cherished. Till we meet again, Mama

What can I say about Ruthie, except we loved her so much. She was so special to us. We had many visits and laughs. Will see her again and pick up where we left off, laughing and acting silly. Curtis and I love you Bro Maples. We are praying for you and family.

Brother Maples, my family shares your sorrow and also remembers the great times we had with your family at Bethany Baptist, and especially Ruthie. The great smile and the wonderful hugs will always be remembered. God Bless you and we all love you dearly.
