Ruthie, My heart broke when I heard this news. As you know, my mother loved you both dearly. I hold a fond memory of you and Tony from the CV Museum Exhibit Fundraiser at the Venus, where Tony was singing up a storm, and my mom wasn't going to leave that unmatched!

Dear Ruthie, Tony and Ruthie went together like hand and glove. Whenever you would see one the other was not far away. You were one of the best couples in our family. We all saw how you loved each other. Tony could not have been in better care with you by his side. Ruthie I wish you peace. You are the best now, then and forever. With love and respect.

As your loving niece Robin has me calling you, (and I love it) Auntie Ruthie, my heart is sad for you. We all know that we WILL meet again, and we know that Tony will be waiting with his infectious smile to see you and all of us, when the day comes; but for now, my heart is broken for you. You two were one of the most beautiful couples I know. I will never forget our first meeting on Glenwood Ave. I will never forget making Tony smile as I sang to him at Orchard View. I love you both. Tony, may you be a guardian angel over Auntie Ruthie whenever she needs you let her know you are there. Rest peacefully. Love, Darlene

💐Dear Ruthie and Family. My deepest sympathies to you at this most difficult time of the loss of your loving husband and friend, Tony. Yes on this side we say “There He goes “. But on the other side their’s a shout “Here He Comes”. This life is over as we know it but not eternal life. Be comforted Ruthie that your love one is in a peaceful rest for eternity .❤️🙏🏼
