    So sorry for your loss of your mother…but it’s part of life that we have to go through. My mother passed over in 2010 on Christmas Eve. She ALWAYS hated Christmas..i told her in those last weeks as we had some intense talks that she would wait until Christmas day.. God bless her and she’s watching over YOU..

    My mom became very good friends with Ruth many years ago. Mom always enjoyed visiting with Ruth over the years until my parents retired and moved. My parents have been gone many years. I remember Ruth being a sweet loving person. So sorry to see of your loss. Prayers for her family and friends.
