I love each and every one of you and will miss Aunt Ruth. The highlight of my young teen years was a visit to St. Louis with my friend Pam Cooper. Aunt Ruth treated us as her own and gave me one of the best weeks of my life. My first airplane ride was the ride home from this wonderful week with Aunt Ruth & family. My prayers are with each of you that you experience a comfort beyond human understanding.
