Last year our dear friend Ruth Leggin was tragically killed in an
accident on her way home from working at the Highland Games
festival. As Welsh League celebrates its 10th Anniversary, we
remember the untimely passing of Ruth and others.

from Bill Brazelton

As there was a shyness, on her place in our hearts is steady and proud.

Poem by John Good in memory of Ruth Leggin

“Ruth”

Pwy sy wedi ein pasio? –
Ar ‘sgidiau mor ysgafn aeth heibio?
Fel cyfnos clws ein cofio
Dyna gymres dan y gro.

Who passed us?
Light-footed went by?
As a pleasant twilight we remember,
A Welsh woman lies lost.

“Hiraeth Ruth”
by Tammy Ryan

The heavens are rejoicing
Receiving a dear friend
Her presence is a blessing
For her it is a longing
To sing the language of heaven

Mae’r wybrennau yn llawenhau
Yn croesawu annwyl cyfaill
Hithau gw^ydd yn fendith
Am hithau mae hi’n hiraeth
I ganu’r iaith y Nefoedd
