    Dear Leonard and Family:
    My wife Victoria and I just learned of the passing of your dear wife, mother, and grandmother and our longtime friend, Ruth Ables. With this letter we express our deepest sympathy.
    I first met the Ables family when they resided in Helena, Texas, in the early 1960s when the Old Helena Courthouse restoration project started. Their home was literally the headquarters for the Friends of Old Helena Foundation, which started the restoration efforts that continue today.
    At that time, the Old Helena Courthouse, the Old Helena Church, and the Ruckman House were in deplorable condition, internally and externally. I remember how much Ruth, Leonard, and their teenage Son Larry helped in getting the brush and cactus cleared away, and the interiors of each building cleaned and straightened.
    I will always be grateful for all your help back in the early days. Happily, many other people and organizations have continued the restoration efforts to make Old Helena one of the crown jewels of Karnes County in this year of 2020.
    Ruth has finished her remarkable life journey and is now in the arms of GOD, awaiting the rest of us.
    May GOD bless, comfort, and strengthen all of you as you carry on in her loving footprints.
    Very sincerely,
    Judge and Mrs. Robert H. Thonhoff
