Friday, April 26, 2019Dear Bruce and family, My deepest condolences reaches out to you and your family in the passing of a dear childhood friend. Ruth Ann was often nicknamed 'Tuffy' or 'Bones' in her early years growing up in St. Williams and it was always used as an endearment because she was a tough bony little sole who had that warm sweet smile. I remember one day at the St. Williams Public School, Tuffy and I was having a girl talk session at recess and I said a not-so-nice word out of my mouth that shocked me and embarrassed me even more at Tuffy's reaction ... 'you swore! I have never heard you swear before!' Well Ruth Ann, I want to let you know after all those years I have never used the 'word' since as I often think of that moment. You will always be a happy memory in my heart. God bless you always, Linda Brzozowski (Woodward)

Thursday, April 18, 2019Hi Bruce and family. What you said is so correct Bruce, as it’s seven years now since Ailsa passed. Being on your own after such a long partnership takes it’s toll for a while, but with good friends and family you’ll make it OK. Always available if you need to talk or walk. Dave.

Tuesday, April 16, 2019Dear Bruce and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Ruth Ann was a true friend and was such a pleasure to be with.

Monday, April 15, 2019Dear Bruce and family, You are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Ruth Ann was such a warm and loving person and you only had to talk to her for a moment to realize how fulfilled she was and that her Family meant everything to her. The picture chosen really captures her glow and the pride and love she held for each member of her entire family. She was loving and kind to so many - she would often cross the road to talk to my Mom while she was walking in Port Dover - and it made Mom's day! I shall always treasure my memories sitting with Ruth Ann and her sister(s) catching up on the children and grandchildren, laughing and recounting a few good farm stories too! This verse has brought me some comfort and I pray it may bring some to you as well. "Those we love don't go away They walk beside us everyday Unseen, unheard but always near Still loved and missed and very dear"

Trish Sutherland posted a condolence
Friday, April 12, 2019My sister was such a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law and friend. She was always so giving and caring. She had a heart of gold and it showed in how much she loved and adored her family. They meant the world to her. She was a spitfire and it was evident through her ordeal in the hospital. She may have been little but she was mighty and a fighter. I am blessed to have had her as a sister and will cherish all our wonderful memories. She will be missed more than you can imagine. A piece of my heart is with her. My heart is broken. A wise young man said to me there is another angel in heaven. God got a good one. That he did. God Bless my girl. Rest in Peace.
