  1. Dear Tom, Peggy and family,

    Very sorry to learn of the loss of your Mother (in-law), Ruth. I remember and have some pictures of us at the Landisburg house in the early stages of your Mom’s restoration efforts. She was a really great Lady. Take care.

    Jack, (your old Kappa Kappa brother), Walnut Bottom, PA.

  2. Last time I saw Ruth was 5 years ago in Florida. She graciously put me up for a night, and we went out to dinner. It was nice to catch up. I have fond memories of visiting Joe’s mom–Red, as he was fond of calling her–back in Mechanicsburg. She was such a strong, independent lady. Rest in peace Ruth. My condolences to Barb and Tom and their families.
