I work for TSI and was one of Ruthie''s drivers. She was always on time and very pleasant. We had many discussions on life and the world as I drove her to where she had to be. She always laughed at my jokes and I will miss her even thought I knew her in a small way. Rest in peace my friend, Frank

My husband Mike and I were very saddened to hear of Ruth's passing. My heart goes out to all of you,especially her children. My husband and I became friends with Mike and Ruth were on Nash Rd. We had some good times and laughed alot. Ruth was a very likeable and had a big heart. We haven't seen Mike for years, but would love to hear from him. She will always be there watching over her family. God Bless all of you.
