  4. I want to send my thoughts and condolences from Michigan. I remember Great Aunt Ruth and Uncle Weldon as very close to my grandmother (Weldon's sister) Vera Ross Birdwell. Although Ruth and Vera were separated by distance in their last years, my grandmother always thought of her and kept in touch via letters as much as possible prior to her death. I also remember Ruth attending and being an active member of First United Methodist Church when they lived in Wichita Falls. Aunt Ruth will be missed by many.With deepest sympathies,Melissa Wood
