Our hearts break at knowing Ruth Ann is no longer with us. I was so excited to know that she was wanting to plan a trip out here to come see us and so shocked to know she had gotten sick. She was always my Sister In Love even after Mark passed away 29 years ago. Our Daughters & I totally love their Aunt Ruth and we shared many wonderful memories together. My heart is with All of you and She will always have a place in my heart as a beloved Sister. I love you guys. While our hearts hurt know that She is now with Jesus in no more pain and reunited with her loved ones there.
