I could not have hand picked a better Grandmother. She was the perfect and beautiful balance between great strength and gentle love. And she exemplified how sometimes the two are one in the same. I realize how fortunate I was to have my children know their great grandmother as well as they did. She was a treasure, a beautiful gift from God. And I am so thankful for all the years and memories.

I just remember how very loving my auntie Ruth always was. I am so happy I was able to celebrate her 99th birthday with her. She was also my Godmother. Love you Auntie Ruth❤️
