Survivor Stories / Tributes

Ruth Lipstein

Personal Description:


I would never have believed that Ruthie, which is what I still call her, could be so brave. Her strength comes from being raised by two very tough women, Mary and Grandma Marcey.

Personal Description:

It is her strength that keeps her going, fighting for each day that she can be with her family.

I wish that miles didn’t separate us, so I could be close, but she is in my mind and heart each day.
As ever, Sylvia

Thanks for checking out all the posts and mkniag time to write comments, Smidge! Isn’t Chicago John good to award her Flatness? Flat Ruthie’s travels have just begun. She had such a good time in Calgary with you.When she returns from all her adventures, we should follow in her footsteps. I tell you, she is eating a lot of great food, too.
