Aunt Ruth loved me. She always welcomed me in her home when I was a kid visiting my grandparents. I remember running through her basement chasing her cat Prince Charles (I think that was his name!) and begging her to let me take home a kitten. I remember her squeezing me tight every time she saw me. I thank her for gifting me the ability to tell looonnnngg stories and for always stopping in to see us when she could.
I will be praying for JT, Teddy, Kathy and Kelly during this difficult time.
