• A Star Named Ruth

    Stars on earths

    Are few and rare.

    They're sent to earth

    For only a short while

    To brighten the world

    And make it a much better place.

    But they are only on loan

    Because this treasured gift

    Is missed so much by God

    That He can't wait

    To have them again

    By His side where they belong.

    Star Ruth was such a star

    Whose big bright eyes

    And treasured smile

    Touched everyone in her path.

    She leaves behind a legacy of love,

    Of cheer, and good will.

    She opened doors of opportunity

    And healed hearts in pain

    And offered messages of hope,

    Of endurance, resilience, and prosperity.

    We, on earth must understand

    That such a gift must leave our side.

    But when that time comes,

    And as we view the shiny lit path

    On the way to Heaven above,

    As wide and gorgeous as

    The most beautiful rainbow,

    It is through the tears that flow

    Of sadness and joy for the

    Love she leaves behind,

    That we must reconcile that

    That love lasts forever

    And it is Star Ruth's time

    To make the Heavens shine.


    In loving memory of Ruth Negron Gaines,


    Roy & Irma Aranda
