    To the Meeks family, I’m just learning about the loss of your beloved Ruth. She was such a beautiful, loving and caring soul as I remember. May God bless you all during this very difficult time. My prayers are with your loving family. I was given this scripture when I lost Billy. Hope it brings you comfort, too. Jeremiah 29:11-15 Much love, Sharon

    How beautiful the sight of all of the rescued animals who owed their well being to Ruth lining the sides of the Rainbow as they, and beloved Bill, welcomed Ruth into Heaven must have been! We are praying the thought of that incredible celebration, as well as the prayers and love of family and friends, provides some measure of comfort for Ruth’s loved ones in the days ahead.
