Be strong in the lord you all are in our prayers , God will not put more on you than you can bear.

People always say that God doesn't make no mistakes. The thing is when you lose somebody that you love so much...it hurts so bad and you can't hardly help wondering---WHY? Oh Lord why! Ruthie Mae has done what we ALL have to do whether we are ready or not. Our earthly lives will end but for the love and hope in Jesus Christ that would be 'the end'; but now dear hearts we can hold tight to our hope in 'the word'. We will see our 'loved ones again and recognize them. So until that Glorious Day, and when death comes a knocking; we just have to keep asking GOD for strength to make it. HE will do it. He Loves Us ALL! God Bless All of Ruthies' Loved Ones. You are not alone. We love you and my heart hurts for you.
