I got to know Ruth from my father coming to the Shaw home in March of last year where Ruth was already living. I mostly got to know Ruth through the stories she and Debbie would recall of what seemed like a life lived with love and laughter. One of the things I found most interesting was that Ruth drove almost anywhere at the drop of a hat. Debbie told me that they drove to Canada quite often to visit with friends. I did not get to see that part of her life. What I did see was a woman who had a great sense of humor who laughed easily, loved and was loved by her family. She will be missed.

I am so happy we where able to visit with my Aunt Ruth several times the last couple of years. It was fun reminiscing about all the road trips my Aunt would bring all us kids on. Santa's Land and Clark's Trading Post to name just a few. We always had a great time. I will always treasure those moments with my Aunt and cousin Debbie. I have a few quotes that come to mind:

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us everyday...
Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

Grief never ends...
but it changes. It's a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith...
It is the price of love.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

I have so many wonderful memory's that should hold me over, my one regret would be that we can't make more....
