Ruth was my last surviving Aunt (John) and she was a wonderful person. We were very close as youngsters in Panama City, FL during world war II years. She always had love for me and my brother Harry and sisters Sue and Judeen. She was a sweet person and had the soul of a Saint. We send condolences to her immediate family and will always cherish the memories of Ruth. We pray for comfort for the family. John
I am so very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the Bible's hopeful message where it reveals that God's purpose is to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs hear his voice and come out." - John 5:28,29. I hope that you find comfort through the power of heartfelt prayer to God and your wonderful memories during this difficult time.
