I was very shocked to read in the paper that Ruth had passed away. She and I used to travel places together, before I started working. Glenn II and my son Todd were friends, and classmates. My family and I are very sorry she is gone, but will never be forgotten. Please know we are truly grateful for having known such a wonderful woman, and her family.

Love to all in the family,
Mary Ann (Davis) Hagan, Todd and Lisa.
