Dear Elizabeth, Susan, Louise and Dwight -
You all are such a special family to us. I am grieving with you, but also giving thanks for the tremendous life and legacy that your mother lived. She will be greatly missed. And her prayers and service to the Lord precede her, and will continue to bear fruit in the life of the church!
love in Jesus,
I remember fondly Ruth's genuine faith, personable humor, and kind service to others during the years when I was a member of The Church of the Good Shepherd (mid- to late Nineties). I recall getting to know her especially through our participation in the midweek prayer meeting.
I am sad for the loss to all who knew her, but happy for her gain: to "be with Christ, which is better by far" (Php. 1:23). May God comfort and bless the extended Monk family at this time of sorrow.
