    My dear Auntie Ruthie was a strong, beautiful, loving, sweet lady. I remember her being the best at doing the twist when we were kids and the best bowler on the Friday night league. After her stroke and paralysis, she has been so brave and strong and lived independently all these years. I will miss the twinkle in her eyes and her sweet smile. I rejoice that she is no longer suffering and that she is flying high with the Angels. I’ll love you forever Auntie Ruth! Give my Mom a hug from me.

    Dear Sweet Momma. I miss you so much it literally hurts. I am so sorry for not being there more for you. I am so sorry for not getting you treated sooner. You fought a good fight all those years, especially since your paralysis. I only pray that I can be as strong as you were for all those years, in my remaining years. I have always come to you in tough times and I will always remember the good advice you gave me. You loved me and everybody so much. You had a heart of gold and a spirit of a Saint. I know in the scheme of eternity I’ll be with you again very soon. Until then I will always be praying to Jesus and talking to you. Some of your last words on Christmas night were those of asking God to open the gates and show you the light and crying out saying over and over, “I want to walk with Jesus, I want to walk with Jesus” and you are sweet Momma. I love you with all my heart and soul. Until we meet again sweet Momma!
