|To the family
of Ruth Worsham,
Mrs. Worsham was the Sunday School Director of my department when I was a kid at Parkview Baptist. I have fond memories of her. Her sister-in-law, Frances Brooks, was the girlfriend of my late Mother, Gloria, for many years.

It is impossible to express how sorry we are for the loss of your devoted Mother. I have so many memories of our families together sharing happy times. I can picture your mother's smiling face & her contagious laughter. I know you are surrounded by loving friends & family. I pray God will provide you with strength when you think you have no more. A broken heart still beats.
