Sharyn UlmanTo Ruth a sweet and kind lady I have known since about 1993. Met her many years before that when she still had her ceramics shop open, made many pieces with her guidance and still have them today. Just recently was given a number of her china painted piece. Ruth may now be gone from us but she will never be forgotten for the many lives she has touched over the years. You are in God's hands now and at peace.
