Tree of life

Ruthie, there is sorrow in my heart for you and your family. Aunt Doris was a wonderful person. Time will lessen the pain you feel. I wonder if you ever knew one of Aunt Doris's pet-peeve. When we were children, we loved chewing gum and blowing bubbles. Every time she caught us, she would make us throw away our gum. Chewing gum was popular in our day and some would stick it behind their ear or under a table and come back later to chew it. Aunt Doris felt very strongly about playing with gum...


My heartfelt sympathy to you on the death of your mother. My Aunt Doris was also my big sister, and I loved her dearly. When I was a small child, Doris took me everywhere she went, to the movies, Washington Park, tennis games and "The Royal Garden Park." I will cherish and remember the fun and good times we shared and words of wisdom she gave me. We love you,Ruthie!
