The Curve of the Moon
By Jim Farfaglia
On nights like this,
when more than the sky is dark,
I love how you lean back
and offer me your lap.
There I sit, watching, as the stars
answer my uneasy questions;
watching, as one gracefully
falls from grace.
And in this waning moment,
I find your age-old wisdom
that comes and goes,
pausing long enough to say,
“Nothing stays forever full,
but, then again,
nobody ever completely
Ruth M. Webber, 87, of Fulton, died peacefully and gracefully in her sleep on Tuesday after recovering from hip surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
Ruth was to love and be loved. Everyone who knew or had the opportunity to meet Ruth loved the sweet, kind person she was.
Ruth’s love for her family is all she lived for. She was the strongest person you would ever meet. Ruth survived the Great Depression and World War II, she never asked for much and gave all in return.
Ruth worked for 35 years at Sealright in Fulton. She enjoyed listening to music and loved to dance, but the most important part of her life was her children.
