I will miss my Classmate, Ruthie Lee. Each time I returned home to Memphis for a visit, a call to Ruthie would be the first thing I would do after greeting my family. Many times, an appointment for 'fixing my hair' would be made. That appointment was really for us to visit and catch up on the many things happening with our classmates near and far, as well as our families. Ruthie would call classmates in Memphis to let them know that Janie Mitchell is in town. If there was a gathering, I was invited to be with my classmates.
Rest in peace my friend; I will miss you!
