Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 (NIV)
I was angry and sad for about an hour. Then the photos came out of the box. And I couldn’t help but smile.
Ruth was always smiling and laughing. That’s not embellishment. I was 10 when she and I watched Beverly Hills Cop on HBO together. The scene when Rosewood tried boosting Taggart over the wall made Ruth cry-laugh for like 2-3 minutes.
She cracked up for several minutes at me slipping and falling on ice while wearing those stupid cowboy boots my mom bought me when I was six. But that’s ok. I got back by saying the okra she ate looked gross.
