Dad, I miss you so much my heart just feels broken. I feel your love and that is what’s helping me get through this very difficult time! You are truly the best person I have ever known and you have taught me so much in your actions & your words. You always showed me what was important and what was not. You taught me how to be the best person I could be. You showed me that anything worth doing was worth doing it right. You taught me to have integrity and to always be kind. There was no such thing as a mistake, it was just something to learn by. I could never go back only forward and to take all of my lessons with me. The love that you showed me was the most important gift that you could’ve ever given to me. I try to always show it as a daughter, sister, wife & mother. I owe you everything that I am & I will always try to make you proud. I love you so much and I know I will carry that love with me every day for the rest of my life. Rest easy Pop. ❤️
Love, Lee

Thomas Ruck

Dad, Going to miss you a whole bunch, and the what do I owe this visit for every time I came to the house and the way you answered the phone yelling HELLO. Going to miss the EASY when I left to go out or go home from your house. You taught me to be respectful which has made me the man and dad that I am today and from what people have told me and my Honey we have passed it on to our children your Grand children. You taught me about cars, wiring, patching the holes in the walls from when I got mad, hanging a door after IT some how broke and computers. I remember waiting for you every night after you worked two and three jobs to provide for us and there were a lot of us. Really Really going to MISS you POP. Love Ya.
