It’s not really my story to tell, but now that Ruthie’s passing is “word on the street”, I can say a little.
Our friends have experienced the loss of their beautiful, kind, smart, and gentle matriarch. Everyone who knew Ruth feels heartbroken at this time. She will be so missed.
I felt sorrowful and helpless while our friend lingered for some days before finally making her way out of this world. Not knowing how else to show support, I did deliver some snacks a few times.
Gary and I visited together on one day. Ruth looked so beautiful and even smiled.
Other than the care of the dogs, I feel like doing nothing whatsoever except cry. I’ll try to do some small thing like clean or craft or even try to sort some paperwork.
Talk to you later.
