    Dear family members,
    There are no words to describe the loss you must feel. I went to school with Ruth in Cambridge and remember when Herbie was born. She was kind to everyone as a girl. I saw her a few years back at the park in Cambridge. She still looked the same, still smiling. I know Jesus has wiped away all their tears and I am praying He will comfort you as you mourn their untimely deaths

    I love Ruthie! She was a great friend to everyone that knew her. She never came to Cambridge much, but, when she did. I always made a point to see her. The family lost two great people in less than two days. My heart goes out to all of them. God will be your strength through your grieving process. Trust in Him to carry you, hold you and dry your tears when you think no one else is around.

    Continue to rely on God and know that he hears your
    prayers, because he cares for you. Truly sorry for
    your loss.
