My most heartfelt sympathies for the Mandel Family. May it help you to k ow that Ruth is now in Gods memory away from suffering and pain. May the words spoken by His son Jesus about Gods promise, for those that have fallen asleep in death, found in John 5:28,29, help comfort your hearts and fill them with hope.
