    To Don and the family, I extend my deep condolences.  Your hearts grieve, yet you have the blessed assurance that Ruth is rejoicing with the Lord, and this separation, while painful, is merely temporary.  Can you imagine how she is enjoying Heaven's music!  I will always remember her at the organ, and her great sense of humour.  Her life was a blessing and she is remembered with thankfulness and affection.

    We were very saddened to hear of Ruth’s passing.
    She was my very dedicated piano teacher.  She taught me from a young age to teenager.
    I recall having to walk from our home on Somerville N. to Sutherland for one lesson, as my father was unable to drive me.  The inside door of her house was open and I knocked but no one came so I left.  I thought I got off lucky.  As a youngster I was not as deficated as my teacher.  But I stuck at it and 50 years later I am grateful to Ruth for her patience with me.  She was always a gentle lady.
    I remember fondly too, skating with her on the ice in the marshes of Lake Ontario.  
    To you and your family Don, my mom Verna and myself send our thoughts and prayers your way.

    My deepest condolences to every member of Ruth's family and to Don her husband. 
    Loosing a spouse and loved one leaves a hole in our hearts but, we 
    always have the memory of their smile, embrace, laughter and the knowledge that they
    are in a peaceful and loving place will hopefully give you comfort as the weeks and months
    pass by.
    Our loved ones never leave us, though their parting is bittersweet.
    My love to your family and my thoughts and heart are with you.
