It pained my heart to hear about Ruth's passing. She  holds a special
place in the hearts of many. I pray that our Father in heaven will
comfort you and your family as only He can in this time of suffering.
Ruth will be missed and I will cherish having known her.
With deepest Sympathy

Joe, I am so sorry you lost your best friend, wife, companion. She is
watching over you now. I didn't know her well but had met her once
or twice. But she was talked about so highly by all that I talked to.
Prayers for you and your family.

Joe, I hate to send my condolences like this, but wanted to reach out.
You see, I am heartsick right now. We were at the church across from
Elmer Fry's this morning at 9:30. Noticing nobody there we headed
straight for Maple Grove, well, by the time we realized it wasn't there,
we were too late. I called 3 drivers at 9:40. I hope you know our
thoughts and prayers are with you and we are both just so sorry to
have missed it. We will remember Ruth as we saw her when we were
there to sing. And treasure the times we spent with her.
