    John and the Falbo family, Ruth was such a joy with such a beautiful light beaming from within. My fondest memory was the Halloween she came in for physical therapy and I gave her my tiara so she could be Princess Ruth for Halloween. The smile on her face and the laughter it provoked from her was absolutely wonderful. She has always been Princess Ruth. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Uncle John, Joyce, Linda, Johnny and Susan, and all of the families, In this difficult time, our hearts go out to you all. Ruth was the center of the family, always keeping up with the children, grands, nieces and nephews, always willing to make room for more of us and include us in family holidays and celebrations. Her spirit will live on as Joyce takes on the role of Falbo family matriarch and we will all remember her fondly when we recall little bits of wisdom,family traditions, funny stories and recipes that she shared with us.

    Aunt Ruth was always special to me, especially after I became a born-again Christian in 1970 - she and the family were living in Morgantown, WV, at the time, and she helped me understand my new commitment, while loving me with grace and kindness. Will miss kissing her cheek, but know I will get another chance later on. Love you, Uncle John, and all my favorite cousins. Love you all.

    Dear Uncle John and cousins, as I think back on the many wonderful times our family has shared, Christmas Eve has to be the highlight- - the magical night when we celebrate the traditional Italian feast of the fishes. Cousins and families would arrive from all over carrying food and packages, and Ruth would turn over her immaculate kitchen to the men for cooking! The fish would be fried, pasta and soup made, oysters breaded, and salmon stuffed! Many of us would be stealing bites along the way to test the feast as it evolved. The eating would go on until midnight when the children would open packages and paper would fly everywhere! There were always carol singing and story reading. Ruth and Joyce would accompany us on the piano. I know all the chaos and clean up sometimes overwhelmed Ruth, but she didn't complain and was always ready to open up her home the following year! Hundreds of memories were made during these magical evenings which all of us will carry in our hearts forever. My love to all of you. Donna
