The first time I had the honor of meeting Aunt Ruth and Uncle David I knew I was in the presence of two incredible and amazing people. Meeting their children confirmed it. To say they are kind, compassionate, loving and caring barely scratches the surface of the depth of their character. There are some folks who's very existence lets your soul know that the world is a better place because they are in it. Ruth and David, their children, and grandchildren, (and I suspect the great grands too) are such people. This may sound flowery and dramatic, and a bit excessive to some, but I assure tribute is sincere. My husband and I never intentionally missed an opportunity to be it the company of Ruth and David and their family. We were always warmly greeted and welcomed into the love that seemed to naturally pulse from them. Though everyone who knew Ruth will miss her, I rejoice knowing she and David are again in each other's arms. I remain grateful to have so many wonderful memories of being with them, and the blessing of being part of their extended family.
