Budd Speaks On the Floor In Memory Of NC Lawmaker Ruth Samuelson
Today, Representative Ted Budd shared a few words on the floor in memory of his friend Ruth Samuelson. See video and full remarks below.
Ruth was only 57 when she went to glory yesterday. Her grace in the fight against cancer was a trait that was seen in her life as a wife of 35 years to Ken, as a mom, and as a public servant.
It was in this strength, rooted in her Christian faith, that provided her with the grace to lead and champion the causes that she held dear. And although Ruth worked in the often divided world of politics, she garnered respect from all sides.
This week we will discuss an issue that was very dear to Ruth - the Right to Life. She fought hard for the lives of the unborn with heart and compassion that earned admiration from all.
Her grace and leadership will forever continue to inspire all she encountered.
With that I would like to end with a passage of significance to Ruth and Ken. It's from Mathew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.
We will miss you Ruth, but we know that you have been added to the kingdom.”
