    Charles and family, You are in our thoughts. While my mom was in Sunset last year Ruth would stop in and visit with us for a minute. Sure enjoyed seeing her after all these years. She was a wonderful person. She is now visiting my mom, Hazel, who passed Dec 8th. while back at Sunset. Carol and Alan Moore

    Charlie SO sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Always enjoyed visiting with Ruth when we were at work and we happened to be on the same floor. I will always remember that beautiful smile even when her health started to fail she had that smile. Charlie I’m so terribly sorry for the loss of your beautiful sweet wife. I will truly miss her.
