So sad to hear about Ruth. Brings back so many memories growing up in Everton and how many special people we had in our lives.
Gary and Tim, I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Ruth. She was such a sweet person. She's up in heaven with Rex, Momma, and all our loved ones that have left us these past two years. Momma and Rex are probably singing and Aunt Ruth is there cheering them on. Love you guys. Wish I could have been there today for the funeral. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Aunt Ruth was always so kind to all of us. She was a good person and raised a nice family. God bless all of her family in this time of loss.
Aunt Ruth was always sweet to hand make me things. She sewed a stuffed Kanga and Roo for me as a child and crocheted a rabbit for me that I still own today as a 60 year old! She also brought me a Levi jacket when she worked at the Levi factory. She was a very thoughtful aunt. 😊
So sorry for your loss prayers for all of you. Judy
