It was a joy getting to know Ardath over the past few years. We spent a lot of time making "conversation" at the dining table. She had such a sweet spirit, an undeniable twinkle in her eyes, and a smile that could light up any room. We will miss her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, her family.
