She was the best mom a girl could ask for, my best friend, my biggest cheerleader, and my angel. She loved her family and friends and would do anything for them. She loved my baby girl Evelyn so much. Mommy I love you so much you were and still are my world. I know you will always look over me. I love you.

Ruth always had a smile on her face. She was so excited to introduce her twin grandchildren recently. You could see her love for them bubbling over. Ruth was a wonderful neighbor. We will miss her smiles.
