    Bill and family
    Our Dear Sister in Christ will be missed by all that knew Her.
    She was a blessing to be with, always smiling and helpful.
    That is except when playing games, She did have a competitive spirit.
    While we will miss her here on earth we know it will be but a short time until we will see her again!
    Don and Shirley Hogue

    Bill, Mike, Heather and family, You will never know the impact Ruth had on my life…she set a high standard that made me want to study Gods Word with BSF like I never had before…each day after her lecture as I drove the children home from Christian school, I would be bubbling over with joy from the truths I had learned…they would ask me, “Well, what did you learn in BSF International today?!” Here we are 20 years later, each of our children and grandchildren love Jesus! I can only imagine how many of us will be worshipping Jesus someday in heaven because of her ministry…I know Ruth spent many hours each week preparing her lectures…thank you for sharing her with us…our love and prayers are with you…Jerry and Kathy Terrell
