    Lou and Family,
    I have many wonderful memories of working with Ruth for over twelve years.
    She always had my back and provided me with excellent ideas and advice.
    We shared many laughs together, usually at my expense.
    “Mimi”, as I would often call her, will always be cherished by not only me, but also by other CANEX staff members. She was a true leader within our team.
    My thoughts are with you.
    John Farrow and Linda Smith
