My condolences to the Washington family. I pray God continues to comfort and strengthen the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of Ruth continue to comfort her family and friends. A comforting scripture to keep in mind is at Isaiah 25:8 "He (GOD) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." May you all have calming and pleasant thoughts during this time.

Mrs. Ruth, Heaven is celebrating as an Angel is being welcomed through the gates. This woman has always welcomed and treated everyone of us as her very own. From feeding us, laughing and joking. She will definitely be missed. To my friend Lisa and all the children, may God continue to grant you comfort and peace. Know that I am here to support y’all. Praying for you. Love, Neen

How can I say goodbye to this special person I hold dear to my heart. Someone who I enjoyed listening to and sharing things we had in common. Sister Ruth is a true Christian and someone who loved the Lord! I will miss our phone calls where she always end with ok baby girl. I was truly blessed to have known such a kind and gentle spirit person. Family hold on to those precious memories in your heart! Your mother loved you all especially her beautiful great-grands who brought joy to her heart whenever they came around her. Let us take comfort knowing that absence from the body is present with the Lord. Sleep in Paradise beautiful lady! You will be missed by me but never forgotten... Thanks for being apart of my joy and world!
