I stayed with Ruth when I was a young teenager. She was so full of life. She was so exuberant about the beauty of nature. She taught me to count my blessings, to appreciate a beautiful day, or sunset. She influenced me more than she ever knew. She told me I was pretty and gave me big hugs. I loved her so much. 
Prayers go up for you, Kim and Nancy. I love y’all.
