My friend passed today...

Ruthe was only 52 years old, a registered nurse and a big tall woman of Czech heritage. She was warm and caring, a lot of fun, and loved by everyone. But she had a very aggresive type of lung cancer which had already spread to her brain before they found it.

Kim and I got to say our good-byes to her this morning. She couldn't talk, but I believe she responded to my voice, and I know she did to Kim's.

We just got a call, and she passed peacefully a short time ago.

She will be missed, but a beautiful spirit like hers will surely remain.

Thank you, everyone. November is a hard month for us. My mother died the day before Thanksgiving, and his pop died two days before. And now my friend.

Strange thing happened today...it's been chilly, wet and cloudy all week, and it's supposed to rain and get colder tomorrow...but the clouds opened up and the sun came out late this afternoon, just before she passed.
