  1. Ruth was kind and beautiful and one of our favorite guests. She loved her potato soup, Jaegerschnitzel, and Prince Regent Torte. Even more, she loved sharing those times with her family, and what a wonderful family she has. We will miss her presence dearly at the Villa Europa, and will think of her often when we seat her favorite table. It will take a very special person to pay proper homage to that seat.
