Ruhland family thanks

In early January we lost our father, husband, son, brother, uncle and dear friend. We would like to send a “thank you” to everyone for their kind words, thoughtful prayers, and sincere hugs.

Jason Ruhland was a great man and it was clear that he touched many, many lives. These lives span the United States, from Washington to Texas to Minnesota to New Jersey; Jason’s generous giving and heartfelt love was received by many, many people.

In his passing, that love and giving was returned to his loved ones. These loved ones include his children, his wife, his siblings and his mother.

On behalf of the family, we would like to say “Thank You!” Thank you for your love, support, and prayers. Thank you for the texts, emails, facebook comments, and phones calls. Thank you for the food; from southern brisket to homemade bread to fruit trays, meat trays, cheese trays, cookie trays, to even pickle trays – Thank You. Thank You for taking the time to serve the food; from funeral meals, to breakfast brunches, to visitation dinners - Thank You. Thank You for providing a comfortable, loving place to stay. Our family traveled miles, feeling welcome was truly appreciated. Thank You for celebrating Jason’s life through your musical talent – Thank You. Thank you for sharing your stories of Jason, from fishing trips, to pickle adventures, to high school and college football games – Thank You.

Thank you to everyone that has helped us through this very difficult time. We sincerely appreciate all you have done for us. God bless all of you.
