Aunt Ruth and Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you ...
One of my most cherished childhood memories is having the Family Fourth of July cookout at your house. All the Aunts & Uncles and the cousins would play baseball and horsehoes and have a great time. The best part was when Uncle Johnnie would coming riding his horse bare-back across the field.His grin was the expression of joy we would all feel from spending the day with family. That grin and his jokes always made me feel special and will never fade from memory....
