We grieve. We mourn. We have lost a dear saint and precious person. But we rejoice! We are comforted knowing that Mary Ruth has joined her Savior and entered her Heavenly Home that He has prepared for her! She’s back with her beloved Everett and I can see them hugging and him smiling that mischievous grin that he always had! I can see her “sittin a spell” with my Grandma Radford watching the birds and them talking about how beautiful the flowers are in heaven! She’s home and she’s at rest and peace. We take comfort in our fond memories and rejoice in the time we had with her until we meet again.

Angie and Karen I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was one of a kind. Always, no matter where we saw each other, she stopped and we would talk if only just for a few minutes. She let me stay in her home and always treated me as one of her own. I have no idea how she managed to put up with us but she did and laughed about it in later years. Loved your Mom and love you guys.
Deepest Sympathies
