To Ruth's family, I just wanted to say that as a young guy coming to work at State Hospital your mom took me under her wing and helped me be the nurse I am today. I was taught how to work and take care of patients under her direction. I started with Ruth, Wanda, and Ike and now all three of them are gone and the world is a lot less nice. I just wanted to say even though I haven't talked to Ruth in awhile she was always on my mind.
