Dear Genie, Cheryl & family,
We were truly blessed to be Ruth's neighbors these last 16 years. We appreciated her friendliness, her kindness to our children, and for making us feel so welcome in the neighborhood. We loved our friendly conversations between our backyards. She always spoke with deep affection for her family and of course her beloved dogs. We will miss her.
We send our love, condolences, and deep sympathy to your entire family.
Warmly, Leslie & Michael Leff

Genie & Cherly: Please know my prayers go out to you both. I remember your Mother from years ago (when we were all much younger). What a lovely lady she was. Love Ruth Ann
