I was in the same grade as her brother Mike. I often visited their house. Jonhnne Ruth would play ball with us. Mike could throw the ball hard but was rather wild. Once, his pitch hit her squarely in the back. She dropped the bat and took out after him. Thankfully Mike could outrun her. I haven't seen her in many years but I have pleasant memories of this kind, friendly lady.

Hold my hand
Written by Ruth Hendricks

It’s my very first day of life.
Mommy holds my hand and says I promise I won’t ever let you go.
The years pass, we both grow old.
Mommy, you’ve never left me alone.
I don’t want to go to school.
You’ll make friends.
Will you still hold my hand?
Yes dear,
You got this!
Look mommy I graduated.
I’m moving out.
Will you still hold my hand?
Yes dear, you got this.
Look mommy, I’m a mommy now too!
I don’t know what I’m doing?
Will you still hold my hand?
Yes dear, you got this!
Mommy the bills are piling up.
I joined the Army to provide.
I’m scared.
Will you still hold my hand?
Yes dear, you got this!
I’ll be holding your hand in my heart.
Child I’m growing old.
Can you hold my hand.
Yes mommy.
I’ll hold your hand and never let go.
Hold my hand dear,
Promise me you won’t ever let go.
I promise mommy. I promise.
Child it’s my time to leave.
Will you hold my hand?
Yes mommy! We’ve got this!
Hold my hand mommy,
I promise I won’t ever let you go.
I’ll be holding your hand forever in my heart!
