One steadfast tradition of Ruth Ann's was when someone was leaving her presence she traced the sign of the cross on their forehead saying "God Bless you"…"Angels go with you". Her family was honored to provide this final blessing to Ruth Ann as she died. In the spirit of Ruth Ann you are invited to do the same with those you encounter. (Anthony, AKRON)
