I will always love my Queen, Ms. Ruth. Years ago she started calling me her “little Princess”, so in turn, I called her “my Queen” as an inside joke. Well, I can tell you she truly lived up to my definition of Royalty, in every sense of the word!!! She has always been proper and dainty, pure perfection and lady-like, as we have come to know royalty to be. But our sweet Ms. Ruth had a fun side as well and I always loved to make her laugh. I really truly miss her, but I can say, I am a better person for knowing her!!!
I will love you forever, My Queen,
Your Princess Sonya
