Tamara, I am so sorry to hear about your dear, sweet Mother. We were in Cardiac Rehab together in 2017. After a few sessions, I realized your Mom and my Aunt Mo were best buddies! We had the best time talking. I so enjoyed her. I'd say she and Aunt Mo are having a long awaited talk about now. Prayers for your family. ♥️

As a child I'd stay over a day & night with tamara. 1st 45 was "Dizzy". Played it over & over, dancing & singing. Ruth would come to living to see if we needed to rest & thirsty. I personally think she was tired of the song. 🙂
Tamra & i would color & she thought it was amazing how hard i pressed down & Tamara light. Dec.2007 mama Whitt had just passed couple mons before. I told ruth on the phone i wanted her back. Ruth responded, " oh honey i know u miss her bc so close, but your mama is having Christmas everyday with the Lord & family. After mom called to tell me my aunt ruth passed away, 1st thing popped in my head was she's having Christmas everyday with the Lord & family. Ruth i want to thank you for all the love you gave me & giving your advice when i would ask you. You are going to be so missed, but remember we such love, but you enjoy Christmas for all eternity. ❤❤
