Sorry about the loss of your Mother. Bob, this will be an expecially difficult time knowing how close you and your Mother are. I will be thinking of you today as I am attending my Nieces funeral this morning.

Bobbo, Kathy and ALL my Adams' cousins: I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruth's death, though I am glad she is not suffering. I'm sure my mom, June, welcomed her to heaven. My heart goes out to all of you. I just got back from five days in Philadelphia, so was unable to be with you in person at the funeral, but was with you in spirit. I have TONS of wonderful memories of your dear mom, and also of your dad and all of you. My heart also goes out to your mom's sisters. I last saw your mom at Joyce's house. You are ALL in my prayers. Cousin Judy

You let me call you "Grandma". When we flew in to visit, you played games with me. You told me about the Simple Simon Bakery and said to sneak a donut to you and not tell Kathy. I did that! You always remembered my birthday and Christmas. I liked to talk to you on the phone. I will miss the only "Grandma" I've really ever known. Love, Rory Wofford (Randy's and Kathy's nephew)
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I will always remember Aunt Ruth's wonderful, loving spirit. She had a great smile that light up a room. Uncle Bob, her husband was my favorite Uncle and passed too young but Aunt Ruth still had to be here for her children. Thank you God for taking her so she didn't have to suffer any longer. Now we have another great angel in Heaven. My heart goes out to the entire family. Love & Blessings, Geri (Petchel) Robak

Our sympathy to all of the family. We always enjoyed your Mom's letters. We remember when she drew pictures for words. She always welcomed us with open arms into her home & made our stays at Fremont fun. We rummaged together, and recall the special peanut butter and teddy bear. Michael still has the bear, but the peanut butter is gone. We enjoyed when she visited us in Canada, too. We will miss her. We are remembering all the family in prayer.

To my cousins, the Adams, It was sad to hear of Aunt Ruth’s passing, yet I took comfort knowing that she suffers no more physical pain in this life. She was a funny, kind, and nurturing mother who shared those traits with us 10 Petchel children, her nieces and nephews. I have fond memories of the times our families visited. The funniest times was when your dad stood at our back door to leave, and repeated his call to her: “Ruth, let’s go! Ruth!!”, and our mom’s kept talking and talking for many minutes more! On March 3, 2009, she finally answered his call. What great visits our parents must be having in Heaven now!
