We really enjoyed going to visit with Aunt Ruth and Uncle Glen around the holidays! Aunt Ruth would sometimes make us her famous dried apple pies and they were wonderful. The last time we went, she had made both of our kids a lap quilt each and they both treasure them. Aunt Ruth was always kind, generous, and truly loved and she will be sorely missed.
Much love from Art, Mary, Jack and Audrey Thacker
