“Ruth lives at Liberty Village of Carbondale and due to the Covid 19 – there are limited visitors allowed. And for the Safety of not only Ms. Ruth but also the other residents we must respect this.  Please help me to show this Amazing, Wonderful, Kind, Warm, and my Best Friend how special she truly is by sending her a birthday card. I want to touch her heart like she has touched the lives of So many others over the years. Ms. Ruth is Beautiful both inside and outside.  Please forward this to everyone you know and then some.”
