Chuck: Our thoughts and prayers are with you, our former neighbor twice. Many great memories. Ruth is finally at peace. Miss you all in Old Towne as we had to move to Ohio to be close to Tammy, and Tara because of Joan’s heart. You were a great, great caregiver. There every day. May God Bless you all. -Bob and Joan Mahoney
To the family my thoughts and prayers are with you. I never met Ruth but in talking with chuck she sounded like a wonderful lady. -Leslie Roberts
