Ruth and Cap had children: Gerald (who died in infancy), Norbert George, Lynnford LaMar, Donald Douglas, and Dolores Ruth.


Do not waste time reminiscring..
Sighing for the "good old days"
But, instead, be up and doing -
Make the most of each new day!

If your hopes and dreams are shattered,
If misfortune comes your way,
Do not wallow in self-pity,
Start anew this very day!

Do not cross tomorrow's bridges,
Don't regret your yesterday:
Live each day, and live it fully
Live and love, and work and pray!

Give the very best that's in you
To each thing you do or say:
If you'll let this be your motto,
You'll have no regrets today!
