Aunt Ruthie, You have become one of the stars in the sky. Out looking on us, from the heavens. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you never went alone, for a part of us went with you, the day God took you home. Between Uncle Bill and your brother/My dad Robert(Bob) waiting for ya I know you made it safely. You suffered long enough aunt Ruthie, You were brave strong and tough. The battle you fought was long and hard, and all the memories that Alzheimer's robbed from you here on earth, were all collected and waiting for you in heaven. Returned in full. God needed an artist and He picked you. Some day I will get to see what He needed you to paint for Him.I know it will be amazing.
Aunt Ruthie you were one of the reasons I became a graphic artist, I never worked well in pastels or oils but I found my niche, now I understand what it truly means to see the world in a different color, I thank you for that. To my cousins Her presence will never be far, And her kindness will always be felt in our souls. She will be missed, She will be remembered; She will be watching us from up above, And will always be there by our side. Our memories and love for her will never fade, She will always be in our hearts; Forever and always.
Rest in Paradise Aunt Ruthie.
I knew Mr. and Mrs. Sheppard from my visits to the Meadows. I was touched by the beautiful devotion your Dad/Grandad exhibited to his wife. He spoke so lovingly of her and genuinely cared for her. In this selfish world of abandonment, it warmed my heart to see love like that. I am so sorry for your loss but take comfort in knowing they are together again as they were before illness.
