    So sorry for your loss Lori & family, Ruth was a dear friend to a lot of us here at Mouse Mountain RV Resort. She enjoyed working our bingo and she & Gordon had fun at our dinners! She was missed a lot when she left here. May the wonderful memories you have help you through this sad time! God Bless! 🙏💞

    So sorry for your loss Lori. Met your Mother and Dad at Mouse Mountain. They were very active in the community and I enjoyed working with them on many committees. May God grant you the peace and comfort that you need at this time.

    Lori, Your mom was such an awesome person. I met her in Florida at Mouse Mountain but I live in Grand Rapids so saw her in Michigan also. She was a kind and gentle soul. God received another angel today. God Bless you Lorie for being such an awesome daughter to your mom, she bragged about you.

    Family of Ruth Debri, We extend our sympathy to you in the passing of Ruth. We knew her for only the short time that we were all members of Baldwin Street CR Church. But during that time Ruth impressed by her lovely personality, her steadfast trust in Jesus Christ as her Savior, and her gratitude as she saw God answer her prayers in surprising ways. May her God and ours comfort you in the sorrow of her absence.

    Lori and Jayne: I’m so sorry for your loss but happy for her homecoming. She was the first to welcome me to our condo courtyard and I miss her much. You are in our prayers as you work through this time. With love and hugs.
