Bailey, Stella, & family, my prayers & thoughts are with you during this time of great loss. I thought the world of Ruth. I know she is much better off, but, that does not help the hurt of her passing. She will be greatly missed at church. Love, Charlotte

So sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. Grannie (Edna Smith) talked about things that she and her sisters did all the time. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
