Beautiful picture of a great lady. I first met Miss Ruth at the Tastee Freeze in Gratis, Ohio, in 1971. We both worked there, and sometimes she would bring Miss Tammy with her beautiful dark hair and fancy dresses. Ruth was my life time friend from the day we met. She will be so happy to meet Jesus, no more pain. and suffering. good bye sweet Ruth. Paula
