To My Aunt Ruth,
There is not enough words to even begin to explain how much you mean to me... (I will not used the word 'meant') You were like a second mother to me. I will always cherish the many visits I made over the years to just say hello because I felt a phone call just wasn't enough as well as the many stories were shared about growing up and visiting you as a toddler during the summers. I can still remember the times you and Uncle Ed came to visit for Christmas during many winter storms and white outs to just to come visit and spoils us with gifts. Mark and I would run up the street during white outs looking for your car at the corner of Jones and Scranton to make sure you were safe.... You were always there for me and I hope that you felt that I was there for you. I know you were ready and wanted to go to heaven for the past couple of years. Well, you made it and I am so happy because you deserve it...... I cant wait to the day I see you and Aunt Betty again. Tell her that I miss and love her very much... I LOVE YOU AUNT RUTH...... Your Little Boy, Jimmy
