~ Loving & Loved Mother ~

Ruby Louise Smith, was born on her daddy's family farm in Cave City, Barren County, Ky, and would be Buford and Mallie's only child. Little more than a year after her birth her daddy began employment at L&N Railroad in Louisville. They moved from the farm to the big city where she was schooled, wed; became wife of 'Red', a homemaker, and mother. Red's job later took us to Arkansas. She would be there about 15 years. After his death Mama moved back to Louisville to be near her parents who were by then retired. We went on "just us" weekend and vacation trips together as my work allowed. Our goal was to visit each of Kentucky's 50+ State and Nat'l parks, and made many loving, happy memories trying. Thank you, Mama. ༺♥༻

The informant for Mama's DC incorrectly named Jefferson County (Louisville) as her birthplace. She was born in Barren County (1918) and lived there over a year before she and her parents moved to Louisville (1920):

.........................................

I thought I saw your face today
in the sparkle of the morning sun
And then I heard the angel say
"Their work on earth is done"

I thought I heard your voice today
then laugh your hearty laugh
And then I heard the angel say
"There's peace dear one at last"

I thought I felt your touch today
in the breeze that rustled by
And then I heard the angel say
"The spirit never dies"
