My name is Selma Key. I was one of Ruthies' biggest candy customers. Ruthie was a wonderful lady. She and I would chat about our families every time I would pick up my order of candy supplies. She didn't care what time of day I came and we had a good time. She always had a smile on her face and loved Ralph like they had been married 50 years. She had a strong will, kept a beautiful yard, and beautiful house. Ruthie was one of a kind and her family is so fortunate to have had her in your life. I miss her every day and was glad to see she was with family on her last days. Thank you for sharing her with so many people. God bless.

So sorry to hear of Ruthies passing. She was such a sweetheart. I met Ruthie years ago when my dad worked at "the underground caves" as we called it. She had such an infectious smile and laugh, that I will forever remember.Then I came to know Ralph through Ruthie. Such a wonderful couple!! My thoughts and prayers to her family.
