Sorry to hear about your Mother. I really liked her and it is sad we don’t stay in touch with people as nice and funny as Ruth. When I first met her it was with Avon. I remember her saying to me while we were on the phone and my kids were screaming in the back ground do you want me to hold on while you beat those kids!! I knew right then she was a lady I wanted to know. Another time, she said if you hear a splash don’t worry it is just the kids jumping in the pool. She was on the POTTY!! I learned to turn my shirt around when it was spotted or burnt by the ashes– I learned more tips on making food go a long way at the end of stamps–Oh yes, I learned to have a wonderful time out– I’m truly sorry I didn’t keep in touch. I tell stories even today about some of the things we did together that will never be told on an E-Mail–HA!Ha!! Bev McClain told me about her being in the hospital and she was looking forward to her coming home and getting together again with her as Bev just moved to the building she was living in, maybe we could have even played Bunco again. Again, I’m sorry to hear about her passing but at least I know another angel, it never hurts to have someone on your side up there. I also remember her telling me she was a holy roller she dated the minister from 4th street Lord I could go on and on. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Donna Kittle-Cox
