Pam, you know how special to me your mom was!! She made the best burger in Aberdeen along w her fries! Amy and I knew Ruth cooked burgers if you didn't come back to Wampus early on Sunday. The 3 of us became as close as sisters while at ICC. I treasure those days and remember the 3 of us discussing our family quirks. What a blast we had!! Be happy like that again. It was the best of times! Dirty Ruth would want it that way! I love you and that beautiful mama you were blessed to have!! I promise to call soon!! Please take time off work. Rest and breathe!! 💕
