Aunt Ruth you were so much more to us than an Aunty, you mothered us every summer as we spent our vacations in NC. Daddy and Momma would drop us off and never thought twice if we were safe and cared for. You let the four of us blend right in with your already full house! We miss you so much already and ask that you have sweet rest! Love your Detroit daughters, Sharon, Sheila, Lavern and Elma Jean!
