I love the photos. Thanks so much. Ruth was such a wonderful woman and it was a treat to have known her.
My mother, Marian Bacon (Winston) grew up in downtown Covington and knew Ruth most of her life. Mom lived on Garrard Street. I don't remember if Ruth's family lived on the same street or just nearby. Ruth and mom played together as children and I was able to get them together for a "reunion" a few years back before my mom died. They both really enjoyed remembering the times they shared so long ago.
(PS: I think I have an audio tape of that conversation somewhere in my family files. I seem to remember that it was a poor recording because of the circumstances, but I'll look for it. If I can I put my hands on it, I'll give it a listen to see if it is decipherable. )
