So sorry for your loss. I looked forward to getting my hair cut at Shear Magic with Ruth. We shared many stories together of our children and things in general. She was a loving and caring friend. It is with deep sorrow that I feel her loss. To the family - she was a person that loved her Savior and served him with gladness. Blessings, from a friend who loved her dearly.

Our sympathy to Richard, Kim, Todd, & family in the loss of Ruth. Our family shared many happy memories of Ruth and Richard when our girls played basketball together. The Burd Family opened their home for our daughters & friends to stay while attending volleyball camp in Norton - it was so thoughtful and very much appreciated. Ruth will be missed. Prayers for comfort and peace. Gary & Tami Woods, Lebanon, KS
