Condolence & Memory Journal

I can't tell you how happy I am that Scott got transferred to San Francisco for two years back in 1975. I got to meet the Sowle family and spend many fun times with them. Ruth welcomed me into the family and showed her love in many ways. Ruth always had a very positive outlook on life, no matter what. She and I continued to keep in contact over the years with many long phone conversations with calls from and to her. I will certainly miss them. Love leaves a memory no one can steal! My love to all
