Rest in peace Aunt Ruth. I was so praying I would be able to come and see you before the Lord called you home. He knows best! Love and hugs to all the family sent with true sincerity. I was always greeted with hugs and smiles when I visited. Give daddy and all those that are waiting for you, those same hugs and smiles. Yvonne Williams ( your niece)
