As part of the California Senate Adjournment in Memory ceremony, I felt it was important to commemorate the life of an incredible philanthropist and community advocate, Ruth Moss. She was born into a naval family, and lived in Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor. She arrived in Los Angeles in 1947, and since then was an Angeleno through and through. Ruth was an outgoing, kind, funny, and an overall exceptional person. I was proud to know her, and we will miss her immensely.
