  1. Ruth was my grandma I never had growing up. She had a smile that would brighten up any day weather it be good or bad. From the first time we met she treated me like her own blood. She was a great pleasure to have her in my life for 20 something years. I love her so much! I know that she is a angel be side Jesus now and I look forward to seeing her again.
