David may our Lord bless the loving faithfulness of you toward your Dear Bride Ruta, as she accepted redemptive suffering while being confined to the physical state of her strong, yet fragile body. Debbie and I have always loved you both, even before you became one flesh in the eyes of God himself. How merciful Jesus is to have brought Ruta home on All Souls Day to be with him and now live eternally in a glorious body and share a supernatural with love you and your children. Amen, Carl

Dave, I don't even know what to say. I knew she was sick but didn't realize she was that ill. My sympathy to you and your family. May God give you comfort at this time and may he bless you for your devotion to her all these years. Take comfort in knowing she is now running the streets of gold.
