Jim and Family Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers

Jim and Family keeping you in our thoughts and prayers

Jim & Mary - our love and memories of Ruth go all the way back to the 1940's (believe it or not) when Ruth was "almost a Yoder" and she and Ruby Lynne are even in some of our early Yoder Family pictures! Then of course when Ruby Lynne and I were best friends from 1968 until she died in 1986. Ruth always seemed like family to us and was so much fun when we saw her. We shared so many memories and she was sharp as a tack and funny as a crutch. She adored you and your family...

My sincere condolences to all of Ruth's family and her many friends, but especially to Jim and Mary-you were so dear to her! What a special lady! We had so many good chats and I loved her enthusiasm for life and a good party! Please know you are in my thoughts as you meet to share memories and remember a life well lived. I deeply regret that I cannot attend the visitation or services! I'd be there if it were possible!

Such a beautiful woman with a big heart and great sense of humor. I will miss our morning chats. And I was honored to do your hair in the mornings. The smile on your face after I would do your hair was priceless. You were impressed and quite certain that I had done hair before, but I hadn't :) You will be missed tremendously. You are once again with Fabian. RIP Angel.

Dear Jim and Mary and all your family,
I am sorry for the loss of dear Ruth, but I want to thank you for letting Morgan spend time with your mom, and I am happy she was able to instill a lot of LaGrange history for Morgan to cherish .s
