    Brian, Jeff and family,
    My deepest sympathy to your family, my prayers and thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
    Worked with your mom at the phone company and have been in contact with her for quite some time. Enjoyed her posts on face book and watched as she didn’t let any grass grow under her feet. Will miss her posts when she would go to the Indians game.

    Hugs and love.

    Brian and Jeff,
    Wow… I don’t believe it! I was thinking when I came to Cleveland, I had to connect with her! Ruth had the heart of an angel and when we were together, the time was filled with laughter! I am so sorry for the loss of such a great woman! You both must carry on her spirit and enjoy your lives! She always wanted the best for you both! Hugs and kisses! We will all miss her! Prayers coming your way!

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mom. What a fun and beautiful woman inside and out. Loved her enjoyment of life and adventure. So enjoyed being with her in Italy and Greece. She was such a dear friend to my Sister Linda Soucek. It is a sad event for all of us. She will be missed.
