Thoughts and prayers with family in this time of loss. Ruth was a favorite in Judge Harper´s Chambers when I almost made a career of avoiding the real practice of law by being the Law Clerk who never wanted to leave such a wonderful place and group of people. Ruth was organized efficient and dedicated with a dry sense of humor. We enjoyed every encounter and loved hearing her poodle stories and of her trips to the north Alabama mountains. Have never and will never forget her.
