My sincere sympathy to Mark Heidenheimer and family. Ruth is a part of some of my most wonderful memories of life in Abilene, TX. She was a wonderful, caring person and always had a smile for me. May the words of Thomas Campbell be of comfort to you in your time of sorrow: "To live in hearts we leave is not to die."
