I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Ruth as her Physical Therapist at Carolina Village. She was so kind, witty at times, and loved talking about her family and interesting life. I felt we were friends and she so wanted to get better and work with me, but often her body just couldn’t do it, but her heart and mind were always willing!

I feel fortunate I had the opportunity to know her and pray she is at peace! My deepest sympathies to her family and I know your wonderful memories of her will sustain you!

Kindest regards,

Kitty Nolan
