Aunt Ruth, my godmother, was a wonderful loving Aunt. I have happy memories of times spent at her home in my early years and then trips up north as we got older. Will miss her kind words and big hugs.

It is never good news to hear of a relative passing, however it does trigger memories. I will always remember Ruth as a caring, friendly and helpful person. To live a life and have a family as big as yours/hers is a wonderful thing.
