Beautiful Ruthie, I will always cherish the little chats we had in your apartment and in The Courtyard at Homestead house. I will always remember you saying " what happens in the courtyard stays in the courtyard!" You always had little snacks out for us and we knew we could come to you if we needed some suckie candies. Thank you for all the little chats and kind words and snuggle hugs from the doggie and you lady. May you Rest In Peace. Denise
