We will always cherish Ruth's sense of humor and her rare ability to tell a good story, keep you hanging on to every single word, and leave you laughing in the end. Fond memories of my Mom (Patricia) taking me to visit Uncle Jimmy, Aunt Ruth, Cousin Blake, and Cousin Corey as a kid on many a weekend and I just couldn't wait to get to their house. We are blessed to have spent many Thanksgiving and Christmas days with Ruth and all other members of the McCarter-Spivey family throughout the years. Our hearts are with the family, today and always. Much love, Kelly McCarter (Nephew)
