    Ruth and I worked together at Roberts Avenue Methodist Church many years ago. Kay and I were of the same age. Reunited w/Ruth and Tommy at Wal-Mart Lumberton as they were planning to move away. Saddened to hear of Tommy passing away and now Ruth. To Kay and the Bawcom family you have my prayers and deepest sympathy. Ruth leaves me with wonderful memories of both families.

    I was a neighbor of Tommy and Ruth for a few years. He was our neighborhood handy man. Any time he would come and adjust our water sprinkler he always brought Ruth. They were such a sweet couple. With heartfelt prayers and sympathy.
