Donna, Ronnie, and Brenda,
I was saddened to learn of your mom's passing. May wonderful memories bring comfort to you.

Shirley, I am so sorry that you lost your mother. I was visiting at Trinity Friday and went by Ruth's room but someone was there and I left thinking I could visit her another time. I enjoyed Ruth's quick wit and her good humor. She was one of the last of her generation.

I enjoyed working with Ruth at Sprague Electric and meeting her again at Trinity Mission where she was a friend to my aunt Hazel Montgomery. Both were great ladies and will be miss.

I am saddened by the news of the loss of another great mother. When I visited Brenda as a child, Ruth always treated me like part of the family. She was full of life, love, and caring. May God comfort your family as you deal with this immeasurable loss.

I am sorry for the loss of your mom. My thoughts and prayer are with you in this sad time.

I loved to visit with Mrs. Alderman when I spent time with Brenda. Mrs. Alderman was a great mother and always kind to her children's friends. May God comfort all of you in the loss of this fine lady.
