  1. Even though the past few years haven\’t been ones to remember, I will always have wonderful memories of Aunt Ruth. What a great lady to have known and loved, and be loved by. She most certainly is at peace now along with Nanny, Poppy and Uncle Otto. I hope they are looking down on us and know that we miss them all. Love, Bob, Sharon, Ashleigh and Amber
