In Memory of Ruth Kobin

A few weeks ago my dear friend Ruth Kobin passed away at the age of 105. Over the last few years she has been a huge inspiration to me and so many others with her optimistic approach to life and aging, and her beautiful spirit. I continue to receive weekly emails from people influenced  by Ruth’s dynamism and vitality. Ruth, you will be dearly missed, but you will remain a constant role model for so many to never give up. May you rest in peace.

    Have been “catching up” after just discovering your wonderful
    blog (Many thanks for this gift to us) and just saw that we lost
    that elegant and noble lady, Ruth. What an inspiration and
    guiding light I found in her. Just love her “style” and approach
    to life…We will probably not see her like too readily. RIP
    dear Lady Ruth.
