In each of our lives we meet people that have an influence. Ruth Beebe was one of those people for me. There is simply too much about her to write, unless I wanted to create a novel-length book. I will say one thing that sums up the woman: she was one of God's Warriors. She used to keep a sign in her office that said something along the lines of "Working for God doesn't pay much, but the retirement benefits are out of this world."
Enjoy your retirement, Ruth. I'll see you in Heaven.
