What a precious lady Ruthie McCoy was. The love between her and her amazing husband Tommy was a beautiful thing to witness. My goodness, they were an example to everyone. She was the love of his life as her was for her. Ruthie, you will be missed so much. kt

What a lovely lady! I’m so glad I got to know Ruthie just a little. She was a beautiful example of a woman who was happy and content with her life. I’m sure she is thrilled to be “home” and discovering an even better one. And Heaven is just as thrilled to have her. Father, comfort Tommy with Your extravagant comfort until he can join her. I know their love story will continue through this temporary separation.

Tommy and family. I am so saddened to hear of sweet Ruthie's passing. She was such a good friend to our family. We thought very highly of her. She was always willing to stop what she was doing to pray for our family when in need. We will never forget her. Thank you for being the best neighbors a family could ask for. She will be missed. Love the Griswold Family Jim and Dallas Sarah, Max and Ryan Jane Aland Matt and Mariah Aland.
