Ruths passing has left many holes in so many hearts. She was such a great human being who loved P Michel and her family more then life itself. My heart bleeds for those she left behind. She put up a great battle and now she is healed and in the arms of our Heavenly Father. She was a lady that will leave wonderful memories of her love for her family and just being a terrific person. I am honored and blessed to have known her all these years. May the family feel Gods love, peace and comfort surrounding them . RIP Ruth.... you were a real gem in the eyes of many. Love and miss you my friend. My thoughts and prayers have been with you and the family and will continue to be with P Michael and family for years to come. Much love to all....
