We have known Ruth for years as our sweet smiling waitress at Shrimp-R-Us and More in Welaka. She always had a kind word and that great smile when we walked in. She would share about her life, garden and children with us and really make our day. Her gentle cheerful ways will be missed by all who knew her, especially us. Our condolences to the family, especially her husband. God Bless you all.
Jim and Carol MacDonald
