My sincerest condolences to the family. I had the honor of being a part of Ruth's journey as the social worker on her hospice care team. Unfortunately, due to illness, I am unable to attend the service, but I will be keeping her family and friends in my thoughts and prayers. It was such an honor and a pleasure to be a part of her journey. She was such a loving, kind soul. <3
