Shirl and I are the only family on her husbands side. She was married to our oldest brother Odis. Ruth has had more than her share of grief. She had three sons, neither reached 45 years of age and one passed at 36. Our brother died at 61/62.
Amazing that her daughter in laws have always been supportive. Helen especially, she has stuck with Ruth like a daughter. She will not leave the room, and is with Ruth again tonight. She is also protective of Ruth and takes care of her like a guard. We tried to relieve her today but she flat refused.
If not for Helen some government agency would be 'seeing after Ruth's welfare'.
Helen herself is a great mother and grandmother. She exudes love and caring.
Thanks for coming by the log,
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
