    Thoughts and prayers to the family. I worked for many years at Heartland with Ruth and i also adopted a kitty cat from her. She always liked hearing updates on how Buster kitty was doing.
    Blessings-Patty Miller

    I worked with Ruth at Heartland Health Care. She was such a nice lady and so proud of her kids and grandkids. For Christmas one year she bought me a necklace/ earring set that I still cherish and think of her when I wear them. She will be missed. God be with you as you continue on your journey without this sweet lady.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Ruth’s family. I’ve known Ruth and Larry for many years and enjoyed spending time with them. Every deer season we would stop and fill Ruth in on how we were doing and she’d let us know how many she saw in the area we would be hunting. I will miss visiting with her.
