From: Vicky Dexheimer
Champ and I are so very sorry for your loss! Always enjoyed chatting with Ruth. A genuine smile on her face and a sparkle in her eye. I still miss going by the house and seeing Jack & Ruth on the porch. Upper Black Eddy will never be the same!

So sorry to learn of Ruths passing, whenever I would see her she always would stand and talk awhile with a big smile on her face and Jack would just stand there and let her carry on. Our sympathy to the family, prayers, Richard and Fran Petiet
