Debi, You'll always have your mom with you through memories that will comfort you over the years. In time, your pain and sorrow will hopefully diminish and be replaced with wonderful recollections of your time together. With sincere condolences, Barb

I got to know Ruth at Heritage Woods in Rockford, IL. I worked on her floor often, and we always enjoyed each others company. I loved her stories of her family, she loved you all very much!! She will be missed always. I quit working there about 3 years ago, so I did not know that Ruth had moved to Texas...God bless you for taking care of her, as she was a blessing from God!!!
