Tina BeanMy hear goes out to you Kris, Dave and Andre for the loss of Auntie Ruth who was so extremely tied to your life. My thanks go out to you for all the years of helping to care for her and include her in your family life. She was a lady we can all look up to as an example of a strong, feminist woman who knew true love in her marriage and would listen to us with an open mind and love. Stay strong and we are all thinking of you. Love, Tina.
Virginia & Chris DavisRuta and her late husband were lovely people, whom I remember rather vividly from our family's visits to visit our cousin, Kris Tumosas, in London so many years ago. She was petite and pretty and very kind, as I recall. We also lived in Toronto back then. To Kris and Dave, and all the remaining family members and friends, we send our sincere condolences and know that your many happy memories of her will help to sustain you through this difficult time. Much love from the Tumosas-Davis family in Chicago-- Virginija, Chris, April & Thomas Davis ~ Oct. 24, 2016
