    Dearest Ruth, you were so close to my heart 💜 and such a wonderful and loving friend. I called you my “adopted mom”, because that’s how I felt about you. You had a huge heart and great patience and love for everyone. I know you missed George because we talked about him on numerous occasions. You also missed Georgie, but you were so very proud of him. Well, now you’re with them both and I know you’re overjoyed and your heart is filled to the brim. I will miss you and the many wonderful hours we spent together reading our Bibles and talking about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My heart is broken but I know we will meet again. All my love, Linda
