    It was my special pleasure to visit with Ms. Ruthie every other Saturday when we served donuts, fruit and coffee at our small religious services at 10;00 - 11:00AM at Hobbs Health Care. Ruthie was such a kind and gentle lady who always smiled and was so gracious. She always asked for coffee with cream and sugar and always thanked me with a kiss and a loving thank you. What a wonderful gift her presence was for me. I am so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful woman.
