So sorry to hear of Ruth Olive's passing. We will always remember her bright and happy disposition. We all look forward to being reunited with her when Revelation 21:3-4 come true. "and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away. Gary and Diane Mollett
