Ross Jerome Tamms left a message on August 18, 2020:
Without fail, Aunt Ruth would send me a birthday card every year despite how old I was getting. Obviously it meant a lot to me. As often as I would say that she didn't need to, there was that card yearly. Being that my birthday was only a month before Christmas, I decided to send her a Christmas card every year. There was is one beautiful Christmas card made by an artist that I thought was most fitting for Aunt Ruth. Sure enough, which did not surprise me, Aunt Ruth wrote me to explain who is artist was and gave me a quick history lesson on his accomplishments. Another memory I have of Aunt Ruth was where I was at Aunt Ruth's home on 38th St. and I had gone downstairs and down there was model cars as such. As a young guy I wanted to touch them, play with them. Aunt Ruth found me at that moment and became agitated with me, saying that I shouldn't touch anything and that Neal was coming home some day! Obviously Neal was in Vietnam and Aunt Ruth was simply worried about Neal and was leaving everything just as he left it. Our family would come over to their house at least once a year and we would have a meal as a Tamms family get together. Naomi, Neal and Debbie would sit at the table very properly while Pam, Scott and I would younger, would be squirming around like a bunch of human worms. I remember eating some of the most delicious pizza at some of those get together's. When I think of it, Aunt Ruth's family are the only other Tamms family kids that we really ever interacted with. I suppose that is what you get when your own dad doesn't marry until he was 40 and I beat that one by a mile! How to see you sooner than later Naomi and Neal. Love, Ross
