Miz Ruth was one of a kind. She raised a wonderful daughter, who I consider my best friend.
Carolyn, I wish so much that I could be at the funeral for you. You know I would if I could.
Please take care of yourself.

I loved Ruth as she was my grandmother!!! It was a privilege to be her caretaker for 4 years. We had a blast together and if there is one thing she thought me was take care of yourself first, And keep god in your life. I love you Ruth and will miss you dearly.
