    Marie and I were sorry to hear of Ruth’s sudden death..We love you all and will be praying for you. We were out of town when this occurred and did not learn of her death until we returned. Sorry we could not have been there.

But heaven is that much sweeter as we look forward to again being with our loved ones and never having to say goodbye again. God never said our path would be easy, but He did say He would walk it with us. May He bring you peace during this time and the days ahead.

    My heart goes out to all of you. Ruth was a very special lady, one I enjoyed getting to know as I grew up. I have some special memories of my times visiting with Carolyn and all of you. I will hold you in my prayers. Love, Sandi Sprinkle
