    Ms. Ruth was the best neighbor anyone could ever ask for, she watched my boy get off the bus from school for many years and looked over our home while me and my husband were at work up to the day that she could no more. We will miss watching her tend her garden and visiting with her. We cherish our time with her and she will be greatly missed. Love, Keith & Melissa Arthur
