Aunt Ruth

Aunt Ruth was true
She always came through
When mom couldn’t do
She made sure I had a gift or two

  5. I had an Aunt Ruth. She was in a wheelchair and came from Iowa to live with us. We were buddies – I’d read her the National Enquirer during commercials for the Roller Derby! Also “rassling,” which she refused to believe was fixed. What a hoot. Thanks for the reminder of all our blessed aunts and uncles who really come through for us. Amy
