  1. Ruth Pagliaro was my spiritual mother. I have known many wonderful saints of God, but Ruth and Mike Pagliaro were the “cream of the crop.” Our family is so grateful for both of them. It is by God’s wonderful grace that they became part of our family. Ruth’s love for the Lord and His people was such an inspiration. Look forward to spending eternity with them around the throne.
