Not sure what to say?

Our deepest condolences

It has been a long time since I was with Ruth butthe times will never be forgotten--While coaching her daughter Ann at Granite Hills, Ruth was always by my side with encouragment and humor. Her smile says it all--I am thinking of you all at this time-what a GREAT lady and loyal friend.

We miss her smile on the tennis court. No matter how bad the game was going Ruth always found something to laugh about so there was never a bad tennis day.

I am so sorry to hear about Ruth. I played paddle tennis with her here at Lake San Marcos. She was always so cheerful and funny. Loved that wry sense of humor! It turned out that my mom went to Sequoia High School with Ruth, so we would chat about that in between sets:)

My heart is so saddened to hear of your loss. The first memory of Ruth I have is as my mother's competitive doubles partner. But, the memories that will stay with me forever are the passion and the love that she had for her family, and how very proud she was of each of you. One that sticks out in my mind was Sarah's "moon balls" at a tournament at the Barnes Center. Love and prayers to you all, Laura.
