I was blessed to have met Aunt Ruth when I was younger visiting all the relatives in Kokomo with my brother and father. We have lost a loved one but Heaven has gained a great soul.

I was very glad to have grown up down the road from Ruth, Emery, and Carol. I know she will be missed very much by her family. I will not be able to be there at this time.
