The gift of a good, faithful and trusted friend is a rare find. I am so blessed by my friend Ruthene. I would come for a visit, she always made me feel so welcomed and loved. We truly enjoyed each others company. We had a shared faith and like-mindedness. We worked together, traveled together, and bargained shopped together. We laughed together, shared each others concerns and encouraged one another. I am so grateful God put Ruthene in my life.
