This is the end of an era. Aunt Ruth was the last of my six aunts and five uncles to pass away. That family generation is now gone, the torch is passed. Aunt Ruth died six days before her 102nd birthday. Quite a life. She was so beautiful, both inside and outside, a devout Christian woman with an incredibly sweet and engaging disposition. My condolences go out to her large and loving family. I will miss her greatly.
