I was named after Aunt Ruth and although we were not close because we lived so far apart I loved her as much as I did all my other aunts. She was close to my heart. They were such an awesome group of sisters and they kept in close touch with one another up until the time of their deaths. They did so love one another.
I will keep the family quilt until I die then pass it in to my daughter. will miss her very much.

My Sweet Precious Aunt Ruth.....will miss emails with her. Have a childhood memory of a day Donna Sue Ruthann and Im thinking Jimmy and Lynn and Ted were at Grandma and Grandpa Kimes homeplace at Crystal. They had a wild plum thicket and all of us decided to pick plums. We were ignorant of the fact that chiggars loved wild plums. It was extremely hot and us kids were around the age of 9 being the oldest Jimmy. Suddenly we started itching and I guess those chiggars were all over us solid. Aunt Ruth Aunt Francis Grandma Kimes and Mom got hot towels and we had to shuck our clothes and be picked. It was never forgotten the itchy days of wild plum pickns..chiggars dig in for the longhaul you know I dont remember going back to the thicket ever. The family reunion days and yes Aunt Ruth was adamant that family reunions be kept. O my...Im very sad. When we get to where we're going It will be wonderful there. Love Doris
