    My precious Ruth, it was a great honor and privilege to have known this precious lady for 39 years 💜 Ruth always called Johnny and I her children, she was one of the most hospitable ladies I’ve ever known ❤ She always gave from her heart ❤ Can’t wait till our wonderful God Jehovah resurrects her back in perfect health. JOHN 5: 28,29.

    Ruth, you are so fondly remembered. We all look forward to that wonderful promise at Rev 21: 3+4. Soon we will all see you again. Prayers for all the family.
