"Ruthann was the ?punniest? person I have ever met!! We always looked to Ruthann for an hysterical, off the cuff, pun!! The funniest story was the day she decided to make a 30 minute Rachel Ray recipe. As Ruthann told us, she used every pot, pan, bowl and utensil in the kitchen. Some of which, she admitted, she didn?t know she had or what they were used for!! It took her 3 hours, a mess in the kitchen that too hours to clean up and in the end, it didn?t taste all that good!! It was the funniest story and Ruthann could not get through it without cracking up !!!! We love you Ruthann and it gives me comfort to know you are home with Jim. Love always. "
