Dear Rita, Debbie, Sherry, Kenny, Fabian and Chris and Uncle Tavis,
I know that there are no words in the whole of the spoken or written languages that can convey how the heart truly feels. Nor have I been able to find any that can adequately provide comfort. Ron and I, and our family is praying that you feel the comfort of the Holy Spirit, that the peace of Jesus, and the Agape’ love of God during this very difficult time.
I cherish my memories of Aunt Ethel. I remember that every conversation I ever had with her involved her smiling, her soft gentle answers and her reminding me of Grandma… in many ways. As you are well aware of, she glowed! You could tell she loved Jesus by her countenance, alone. I can only imagine her home-going party in Heaven! I learned much about Aunt Ethel’s growing up years from my Dad. He loved her so very much. He has lots of stories that involve her and him, as well as other siblings. I never got my fill of visiting with her since we lived so far apart, but I plan on doing a lot visiting - when I move to my permanent address in her new neighborhood!
God bless you all and your children and grandchildren,
With love and prayers,
Tina (Mullins) Ruth (for the Ron Ruth family)
A Song for you: 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)
