I was shocked when I just recently learned of "Aunt" Ruth's passing. Ruth's lifelong friend, my mother, Charlotte Marlow, died just a few months after Ruth died, July 29. I didn't realize it had been so long since we had exchanged emails. Time sure does fly.
Anyway, I am very sorry about your loss. I don't know where to write to you or I would have.

Ruth was special. I was pleased that we had a visit together and shared our Purtlebaugh/Bartlebaugh history. I learned a lot from her.

Sincere condolences to the entire Harrington family.Even though Dave and I did not get to meet Ruth, we did get to see her on Ian's family videos and pictures over the past several years. She definitely showed all of us how to live and love life. Prayers and hugs to you all.

Dear Harrington Siblings, Fred, Jean, Ann and Kent: Mom's departure leaves a void in our hearts. Lets us take solace in her quiet strenght, her zest for life and her undaunting courage to face every situation with grace. She was a great Mom, Grand-Mother and Mother-in-Law. I am fortunate to have had her in my life and will not forget the many life lessons I learned from her. Mama, Happy Trails on your final journey, our love accompanies you.
