This poem has been included with the permission of Ruth's brother, Art. Ruth passed away Saturday, Jan. 17, 1998 at the palliative care facility of Prince Edward Home. I would like to extend to her family and brother all our best wishes and condolences. Art said that she would be very proud to know that her work had been included here. Our thanks to Dorothy Farish who typed this poem for us, so that it might be included on the Register.
