Not sure what to say?

Billie Jo and family,
Meeting Aunt Ruth was one of the highlights in my life. She was so talented and shared so many stories of her childhood. I felt like one of the family immediately. I was so fortunate to have been included in the Wednesday chats with Aunt Ruth and John. We will miss her laugh and good humor forever.
All our love,
Denise Fritsch and John Crowder
