  1. Ruth was someone very special. Always willing to listen and voice her honest opinion , I always respected that she was truthful to me. Mrs. Kinsley I will miss you and your wonderful motherhood. Love Dwayne

  2. To the Kinsley family: First of all, may I offer my condolences to your family on the passing of your beloved mother. Now, to two of the survivors — this is directed to you Jeanette and Daniel. I was your teacher at Lincoln School when you attended, and I must admit that I always looked forward to parent/teacher conferences with your mother. She was a ball of fire as I remember her. Now I know why — she was a New Yorker. This is a difficult time for a passing of a parent — my own mother years ago passed away on December 20th. Not much of a holiday season with that on my own heavy heart. My heart goes out to you. I don’t forget my former students, even though they have been adults for years. Again, my condolences to you. Love and peace, “Miss K.”
