To the family of Ruth Wells, I pray for the Good Lord’s arms to be wrapped around each of you covering you with His perfect love and peace to comfort you. Ruth was a true loyal, honest and faithful friend. She was a sincere, caring, and sometimes bold and a true grit lady. Her personality attracted people to her. She was not only my boss but she also was my friend. Rest in the arms of Jesus.

Christy, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother defined loyalty. Loyalty to family and friends, but especially her kids. I will always remember the good times playing gin rummy and watching American idol while having some uncontrollable moments of laughter. My sympathies to the family..
