My loving Grannie, I have 10 lifetimes of memories that I hold special. I cherish the fact that I was your first grandchild, but you treated me as your own. Whatever Brenda got, you got me one too. How we laughed when you'd be calling Brenda but say Tracy, Tina "Well to help my time"! I do the same to my boys. Al l the times you took us roller skating, summers to Camp Sumatanga, your hair in pin curls that was secured by all those Bobby pins and that 1 pair of panties. Me & Brenda fussing who was gonna sleep in the middle by you. Going to church every Sunday, we always had homemade meals, those matching, white, rabbit fur jackets we pitched a fit for and wore holes in. The hot fudge brownie/sundaes from the Truck Stop, I still underline the words in cards I mail out; like you. You are God's shining example of a true Christian woman that loved her family, her faith & found the good in everyone. I will miss you every single day. I love you with all my heart. My heart may be broken right now but I know you are in Heaven with our other family and you will be watching over us all everyday. Thank you for EVERYTHING you had a part of in my life. Thank you for loving me as your own daughter, Thank you for being MY GRANNIE RUTH. I'm gonna miss you and think of you every single day. It's your time to take your break you've wanted, put on your angel wings and soar!!! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜‡

Grannie Ruth,
Thank you for teaching mom all the "old wives" tales, putting socks on us newborns to help sleep, and you always said "Tracy, keep them in the bed with you so you know they are breathing"
She always took your advice to heart. And Mitchell really thanks you since he was Mom's 1st born and she had no clue what she was doing..

FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS..YOUR FOREVER GRANDBOYS....
WE LOVE YOU!

MITCHELL, ALEX AND ROGER SCOTT.
