She was a Sister, Mother, Aunt and Friend
Someone on whom you could always depend
She was Counselor, Advisor, and Mentor to all
There to pick us up if we should fall

She was persistent, tenacious and so strong willed
Not one to be stopped or one to be stilled
She was ahead of her time in so many ways
Cooking soul food and pound cakes all of her days

She made time for us all, to sit and chat
Telling stories from the past about this and that
She remembered all the names in the photo book
When we would ask as we took a look

Grandmother, Great Grandmother, to such a big brood
Her hugs and kisses sure to lift us all
She will always be remembered at the door waving goodbye
Trying hard to smile with a tear in her eye

She saw so much in her 73 years
Even mentored, trained and loved all of her peers
But the good Lord said, Bunca, it's time to go
Heaven is waiting, on you to show.

You will be truly missed Auntie Bunca

To Joan and the entire McDaniel and Heard family you have our deepest sympathy in the death but heavens gain of your loved one. Ruth was a graduate of Froebel High School and we as fellow classmates of every year share in her passing. It's not a loss because she knew God for herself.He only loaned her to you and all of us.Now she is gone to receive what God promised eternal life. In the days ahead we will keep each of you in prayer for your strength. Our chain has been broken but Flame and Blue and our love for her last forever. We love you Buca.
