All of you are in my prayers at this most difficult time. It was always very easy for all the WHCA staff to see how much Ruth loved Jeffrey and Julia. I especially remember Ruth taking Julia as such a little girl to the West Highland Baptist Church Library very often to get many books and how proud she was of you Jeffrey, when you graduated as valedictorian and what a special open house she prepared for you. Hang onto the good memories and the hope and promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Eunice Sanford

There are no words that could express my deep sorrow for the loss your loved one. Ruthie was absolutely beautiful, and I'm sure loved, by everyone who knew her. The world was a better place with her in it. My thoughts and prayers are being sent in hope that you will find comfort in this time of need. There's one more Angel up in Heaven now.

My sympathy and prayers to the Hock and Pine families on your loss. It has been many, many years since I saw Ruth, and she clearly grew from a beautiful girl into a beautiful and loving woman, wife and mother. I cannot begin to imagine how hard it is for all of you to lose her. May you find peace and, someday, more joy than grief in the shared memories you have of her. God bless.

Ruth & I became good friends in 5th grade. We had so many fun times being little girls together. She was the sweetest person you would ever want to know. I'm so sorry for Bernie & the kids. She was truly a beautiful person and this world was a better place for having her in it. Many prayers to all her family. Bonnie

Bonnie (Hammon) Flowers

Bernie and family, Good friend, my family and I send our most heart felt sorrow to you at this time. I grew up with both of you through most of my youth. And, when I heard you both were married, I knew you would make a beautiful pair. I think it is a rare thing in life, and at times it seem not very common when two can make a good life for each other together, but I can tell you were both very successful. My prayer for you brother, is that you have acquired great wealth through family. I will keep you in Ruth in my thoughts and prayers. Gods peace be with you.

Don, Alma, and Jon Marchello

God gives us wonderful memories and blessings in our lives. Since Jr High school I’ve had a crush on Ruth. I’ll never forget sitting next to her in homeroom class. I slipped a Valentine card in her hall locker, and peaked at her from around the corner, I watched as she read that beautiful card. Ruth’s beauty and my shyness overwhelmed me. A friend boldly told her my whereabouts, as I told him what I was doing. I walked up to her, and she told me softly she did not like me. Now it's 2011. I just googled her name and found out she passed away. I am saddened. I miss her, and will always love her. I pray peace and blessings will continue to be with all those that came into contact with her. Sincerely Danny Fuson.
