    Many wonderful memories of the time we shared with Ruth and Maurie when we were neighbors- visiting, playing cards and enjoying a happy hour or two! Two great people that God has brought together again. My prayers of comfort to Bob & Carolyn and the rest of the Sharp family, Ruth will forever be fondly remembered but her parting will forever leave a void in your hearts. God Bless you all.
