Just tonight I learned that Ruth had passed away. We send our sympathy to her family. She was a very special lady. I always enjoyed golfing with her; we shared a love for the game. I bowled on the same league with her for many years, too. Very seldom beat her, though! More importantly, however, she was genuinely a very nice person. I don't think I ever heard her say a bad word about anybody!
