The following is a note from Ruth's daughter:
Here is my mom with one of our dogs, Abbey. She was their "Nana" and Abbey and all our dogs since her passing, have always chosen to sleep around my mother's chair and keep her company. She loved them dearly and called them "her babies." I think they are part of the reason that my mother lasted for 97 years!
There are two ways to honor this loving, kind woman.
