Relation: my "Auntie Ruth"

Auntie Ruth,
You took care of me from when I started kindergarten till I had to leave in grade 4. In those years, you loved me and cared for me like no one ever had. You are the kindest person and have the biggest heart. I have fond memories of you walking me to school when I was so young and new to Canada, the amazing food you would prepare every day for your family, and spending time in the kitchen with Uncle Alex. To this day I am still looking for potato cakes and cabbage rolls that taste as good as yours. Though I have not been in contact for so long, you have always been in my thoughts and actions my whole life.

Vera, Martha, Ruth; I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was an amazing person and I loved her so much. She will forever be in my memories.

From: Jim Kiazky

With deepest sympathy. May her memory be Eternal.
