I want to offer my Condolence to you and your family. Thru Brith Sholom and The Ladies AuxilaryI I got to know Ruth pretty well. I took over being treasurer, after Ruth was treasurer. You have been a wonderful Care Giver. When I saw the two of your together, I saw the kind of love we read about in Romance Books, Joe you are a special person. I am so glad to have known you and Ruth. Harriett from Raleigh

Dear Joe and Family, Ann and I wish to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to you all. Ruth and you were always the friends we looked forward to spending wonderful dinner and gaming evenings with. She has made her mark and imprint on so many lives, far beyond her family as well.

We wish we could have been there with you all. We are still isolating in Florida since 2020, We hope Ruth’s memory will be a blessing on you and all who had ever known her.
