Ever since I can remember, when I recall times I spent with of my grandpa, John McCutchen Jr, there was his close friend, Ruth Wagner. At Christmases, Thanksgivings, birthdays, random non-holiday gatherings, whatever the occasion she attended them all! To me she was always another member of our family. After Grandpa passed away I wasn’t sure what had become of her. I was full grown with kids of my own & after years of not hearing anything about Ruth I had assumed that she must’ve passed away by then as well ... I am deeply saddened to learn that we could have kept in contact ss she had remained in FD this whole time! I hope she didn’t think I just turned my back on her or cut her out of my life after Gramps died because that was not the case at all!! I hope she’s up there with him again, telling him to “turn that darn tv down” again & that she knows I always loved her. Thank You Ruth for the years of companionship you gave my dear Grandpa John & for the countless childhood memories you gave me. Deepest condolences to your entire family 🙏
