Ruth was a precious and integral part of the Kelly Assisted Living team. She was loved, admired and appreciated by office staff, caregivers and clients, alike. Ruth’s open and loving heart enabled even the most anxious and difficult of patients to feel more comfortable and well cared for. And, much as she loved her clients, Ruth’s heart was her family. You meant everything to her. I know that this dear lady had been declining for quite a while and she is finally at rest, but that doesn’t make your loss any less real or painful. Please accept my sympathy and prayers and know that there are many people in this community whose lives have been graced by Ruth’s loving attention. I, for one, am truly grateful to have known her and worked by her side. She was a gift from God, for sure.
