You be missed always, Aunt Ruth. One of the classiest, most special people I've been lucky enough to know. I will never forget my trip to stay with you when I was in grade school. We watched the royal wedding, went to the beach, ate ice cream and you taught me to cross-stitch. Such sweet memories. Thank you for always finding time to share your memories of our family history so they may be passed on to my children. It's hard to believe you're gone... Love always.
