Just back from time away with friends, we are touched with your mother's obituary. What a dear woman she was for our world. We read with interest her work with your father in Burkina Faso that we'd been unaware of when we were neighbors. Our son Mike, who always loved being their paperboy, has now for years been working on projects in Burkina Faso with numerous trips there. Who would have guessed someday they'd share that tie?! The Lord weaves us all together in ways we'd never imagine! Bless you all. Chuck and Sue Thayer

Enjoyed working with Ruth at the tax dept. She was a hard worker with a cheerful disposition. Last time I saw Ruth was a number of years ago at the old Kroger store on Oatis street. It was good to see her again after she left our place. I always have good memories of her and when the old gang from work gathers we all speak fondly of Ruth. May God bless her soul and all your family. You have my deepest sympathy on your loss. Yvonne Spitulski

Our condolences to the family of Ruth. We knew her when she served along side of her husband, Pastor Jim, at Berean Fellowship. She was a beautiful example of a faithful servant of the Lord. She will be greatly missed by many, but she is now in the presence of her Lord and Savoir. Dennis and Linda St Johns

"To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord", the Biblical hope for a believer like Ms. Riccitelli. May our risen Lord richly bless you all as you remember her life legacy & celebrate her homegoing to Heaven. 'I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown'.
