Our heartfelt condolences from Linda and Tom Bracken--Minneapolis, MN (Linda Jacobson Bracken)
Ray and Ruth were host and hostess for our 1972 wedding at Grace Baptist Church, helping us stay organized throughout.
Ray and Ruth also came to visit my parents when they were very ill, in 2004 and in 2008. I appreciated their love and caring and prayers at that time.
My brother Don had Ruth for his biology professor at U. of New Haven.
You are both missed very much. Linda Jacobson Bracken

To Erik, Natalie, children and all the families,
Bob and I met Ruth and Ray when we first attended Grace Baptist back in 2000. Such a wonderful loving, giving,
sharing, and Christian woman Ruth was. We send our deepest condolences to all of you. She will be missed by all of us at Grace Baptist. She is now with Ray and together they are singing with Jesus. Memories are a gift from God that death cannot destroy. May the Lord fill your hearts with peace and love.

With deep sympathy and love,
Cathy and Bob Staurovsky

Love, Lois & Dave
