Christina Kulpa

Words cannot describe the sorrow I felt on finding out about your mother's passing.
I still can't believe she is really gone.
I just wanted to extend my most heartfelt condolences for loss of your mother.
She was a wonderful woman who had time for everyone.
Her selflessness and generosity will be missed by all who know her, the sense of humor and sharp mind to the end is to admire.
Her generous spirit and warmth was clear to everyone who met her.
She will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
You have my deepest sympathies.

Sam And Carol Cohen

My Mother , Ethel Cohen who has passed , often spoke of her daily conversations with Ruth.
She loved her spirit and being sharp as a tack. They talked politics and family. I know that they both enjoyed their talks as they both told me. I would try and call Ruth every week to continue the trend ! She appreciated our effort , my wife Carol and myself.
Sometimes we would speak for an hour , sometimes 5 minutes , but it all was worth it.
Our lives were enriched that much more by speaking with Ruth and getting to know her, She made us laugh and she often spoke on how much she missed the talks with Mom.
We send our thoughts and prayers to the family and her friends , knowing her spirit will be within all of us.
