We were the lucky ones to have had Ruth as our next door neighbor for over 16 years. We will miss her terrifically, as will many who loved her. A wonderful person ... just wonderful. We already miss her. Love, Donna and Tony

Kathy, Kerry, Kay and all--I'm so terribly grieved & shocked by this sad news. Ruth and I have been close friends since UT days and this leaves a giant hole in my life!
