Dear Harry- I was so sad to hear of Ruth's passing. I remember so fondly the fun we all had together at Camp Glisson in our teenage years. I admired her at Wesleyan and was fortunate to see her at one of our reunions. I also met your lovely daughter, Robin. My heart grieves for your loss. Please know I'll be thinking of you in the next few days and praying for your family.
Love, Emily England Frazier Stamos

I was saddened to hear of Ruth's passing. What a wonderful person !
My thoughts and prayers go out to you during this tenderhearted time . You were there comforting us when our parents passed. I know we will be reunited with our loved ones some day and will share eternity with our Lord !

To Ruth's family: As you well know, Ruth was a lovely, warm and wonderful woman. She was certainly one of my favorite people at Wesleyan. I was honored to sing at Harry and Ruth's wedding. I only wish I had seen more of those two over the years.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Harry, Lee & Robin....just heard the sad news today about the amazing lady we all called Ruth. Like many others have expressed Ruth was a special person in each of our lives. I was a barely a teenager...but I can remember the first time Rev. Harry spoke in front of the congregation at The United Methodist Church in Visalia and even though Robin had more to do with getting my attention than Harry's words that day...the arrival of the Woods Family brought a truly special time in all of...

Dear Harry and family, I am so very sorry for your loss, you have been in our families lives for a VERY long time. Rest in peace sweet Ruth.
