Dear Jane and John.  My prayers are with you today as you celebrate the going "home" of your beloved mother.  Ruth Helen was such a fine lady and true Christian.   She was so kind and such a fine mom to you both as well as Bill and Beth.  I know you will miss her terribly, but will take comfort in knowing she is NOW in the arms of Jesus.   God Bless you both and your entire family.

To the family of Ruth Myers,

My deepest sympathies in the passing of your loved one.  She was a very dear and sweet woman.  I knew Ruth only through my aunt, Joyce McDonald.  Ruth did sewing for me and the last clothes that she made for me was 29 years ago, and it was maternity dresses.  I was just talking with my aunt about Ruth in August.  Again I am sorry for your loss.
