Ruth forever in our hearts

Traducción en español más abajo


Ruth,

You were the lady with the fairy dust, making every occasion more memorable, more colorful and more beautifully decorated…

53771770_1610081176148959_r.jpeg
Your girls’ birthdays became magical adventures to faraway lands full of mermaids and dolphins,

53771770_1610079953663983_r.jpegYou were the one who added the star dust to memories of weddings, hen parties and dinners overlooking Tower Bridge,

And it was you who opened the champagne for the first promotion of my career.

You were the lady who knew people, who gave brilliant gifts which were exactly what they loved and which were sent after so much thought,

I still feel like a million dollars on the days I get to wear your jumpers.

No one can ever match you in that.

You were the loud lady with the laughter, and the good cooking, the evenings at Thirlmere Avenue, empanadas and the Chinese tea.

You were the cheeky monkey, 
The one who could laugh at herself for being on a diet,
And who knew how to get all dressed up for a party.

You were the one who could chat to the great and the small and put them at ease,

Yours was a love that was loyal, and a faith that was as honest as the distance it stretched for your big adventures.

You were the lady who was hardworking,
Who put her mind to whatever job she had at whatever level,
And over time people would see you shine.
You were the lady who got promoted.

You were the lady with a big heart of love for your family,

Your love crossed oceans and you managed to stay as close as if you lived across the street, 

You seemed to make Argentina feel next door to London despite being thousands of miles away.

And you were one of those women who was made to be a mum, 

Your girls were the center of your life and you showered them with your love.

You and Esteban were the couple who travelled, who weren’t afraid  to invest, to risk, to learn,

You were the couple who could face the tough times and love the fun times,

53771770_1610082502945033_r.jpeg
Who stayed up to play computer games all night and scuba dived in a swimming pool in the darkness just so that I could learn,

You were the couple who were kind, who didn’t have to be the center of attention,

You were consistently there for us – at the 2am airports runs we were always met with happy, smiling faces,

You were the couple who could not be conquered.

 We are devastated for Tevy and your girls and we will do our best to show them as much of your big kind heart as we can, and to honor your legacy of making beautiful memories and magical parties.

We are unbelievably sad that Zephi and Toren won’t grow up knowing you as their Godmother, with your fairy dust.

Ruth, thank you - we are so grateful for every moment we had with you. Our lives will be less without you in them.

Ruth leaves behind her beloved husband Esteban "Tevy" and precious daughters: Regina 8, Giuliana 6 and Vicky 2.   These are very difficult times for our dear Gecchelin Family, please help us shower them with love through your prayers and donations.

Ruth,

Tú eras la dama del polvo de hadas, haciendo que cada ocasión fuera más memorable, más colorida y más bellamente decorada.

Los cumpleaños de tus niñas se convirtieron en aventuras mágicas en tierras lejanas llenas de sirenas y delfines,

Tú fuiste quien agregó el polvo de estrellas a los recuerdos de bodas, despedidas de soltera y cenas con vistas al Tower Bridge,

Y fuiste tú quien abrió el champagne para la primera promoción de mi carrera.

Eras la dama que conocía a la gente, que daba obsequios brillantes que eran exactamente lo que amaban y que se enviaban después de tanto pensar.  Todavía me siento como un millón de dólares los días que llego a usar tus suéter.  Nadie podrá igualarte en eso.

Eras la dama ruidosa de la risa y la buena cocina, las tardes en Thirlmere Avenue, las empanadas y el té chino.
Eras el mono descarado, la que podía reírse de sí misma por estar a dieta, y quien sabía cómo vestirse bien para una fiesta.

Tú eras quien podía charlar con los grandes y los pequeños y tranquilizarlos,

El tuyo era un amor leal y una fe tan honesta como la distancia que se extendió por tus grandes aventuras.

Eras la dama que trabajaba duro
Quien puso su mente en cualquier trabajo que tuviera en cualquier nivel,
Y con el tiempo la gente te verá brillar.
Usted fue la dama que fue ascendida.

Eras la dama con un gran corazón de amor por tu familia,
Tu amor cruzó océanos y te las arreglaste para estar tan cerca como si vivieras al otro lado de la calle,
Parecías hacer que Argentina se sintiera al lado de Londres a pesar de estar a miles de kilómetros de distancia.

Y eras una de esas mujeres que fue hecha para ser mamá
Tus nenas eran el centro de tu vida y las colmaste de tu amor.

Tú y Esteban eran la pareja que viajaba, que no temía invertir, arriesgar, aprender,
Eran la pareja que podía enfrentar los tiempos difíciles y amar los momentos divertidos,
¿Quién se quedó despierto para jugar juegos de computadora toda la noche y buceó en una piscina en la oscuridad solo para que yo pudiera aprender?
Eras la pareja que era amable, que no tenía que ser el centro de atención
Estuviste allí constantemente para nosotros: en las carreras de los aeropuertos a las 2 a.m. siempre nos encontramos con caras felices y sonrientes,
Eras la pareja que no podía ser conquistada.

Estamos devastados por Tevy y tus chicas y haremos todo lo posible para mostrarles tanto de tu gran corazón como podamos, y para honrar tu legado de crear hermosos recuerdos y fiestas mágicas.

Estamos increíblemente tristes de que Zephi y Toren no crezcan conociéndote como su madrina, con tu polvo de hadas.

Ruth, gracias! Estamos muy agradecidos por cada momento que tuvimos contigo.  Nuestras vidas serán menos sin ti en ellas.

Ed y Beth Harrap
