Karen Paul and family my deepest sympathies to you and the family. I didn't know your Mother but I already know who she was though you Karen. You are a blessing to many. That is something to cherrsh, that I'm sure was how your Mother was in life. She gave you her gift, that you have passed on to your children. Compassion, empathy, forgiveness, and love. Your mother lives on in the many memories you shared but most importantly she gave you her ❤️. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family at this very difficult time. RIP

I was very fortunate to have known Mrs. Benoit, for a little over a year. She always had a big and beautiful smile on her face. She was a very loving, kind and caring person. Ruth raised a wonderful family, and they made sure she was always cared for and loved. I know they all made her happy. I will miss her greatly. God Bless you Ruth and Rest In Peace.
