My ‘Aunt’ Ruthie, my mom’s best friend from childhood, was always an important part of my life. Our families were one family. She loved us all like we were her own. I remember laughing when she and Mom talked every day on the phone. They had their shared laugh. It was different than her laugh with cousins Flo or Selma or Aunt Wilma. We called it her Ruthie laugh. It was the best. I can still hear them. Aunt Ruth and Uncle Norm witnessed the signing of my Ketuba. Aunt Ruthie, you will be missed here but I know the girls are back together again and that makes me smile. Love you always, Barbara

My heart is filled with sorrow. Ruthie was my mother’s best and dearest friend for over 70 years. So many wonderful memories of our lives together. Sending love to Bobby, Marc and your families.
