We are all fortunate to have known and shared Ruth’s light, guidance, and love. “Angels go before us, to lead the way, in life and beyond.” Thank you, Ruth, for all of your kindness, thoughts, guidance, and light in this World. Tears and sadness will eventually wash away most of the Earthly pain inside our heart, mind, and soul of your leaving us temporarily behind. Bless you always and beyond the here and now. We miss you dearly, and always will, until we meet, again. Love & light always . . . Sandra & Nelson

Ruby stunned our William & Mary MBA class when she erupted in a lightning fast typing speed on our HP laptop computers to answer an essay question on one of our first exams. She was a beautiful and gentle-hearted spirit that I remember with great affection and fondness. She will be missed by all, and I extend condolences to Gary and her children as well as to her business partner Mark.
