  • Steve...from her three kids, here's a big "Thanks for the kind words about MizAnnie!" She's a communicator--as you probably noticed, even at near-90, when she's story-telling she'll frequently meander off for a 'sidebar' or two, then jump right back to where she left off without skipping a detail! We appreciate your active interest in offering the T-G readers/bloggers a slice of our Senior Citizenry. Many of them have a level of wisdom that's often missing with those of us following along behind the "greatest generation"! We appreciate your positive efforts!!

  • I read the T-G early this morning & hoped to see Mary Ellen at church & mention to her how much both my husband & I enjoyed reading her mother's letter. Here I was worried about moving from Nashville to Shelbyville. That was nothing compared with the change MizAnnie made in her life when she married. It is obvious that she loved not only her husband but her gardening as well.

  • I met Annie Ruth through my job at the Senior Citizens Center. She is a treasure.

  • I found this article about "Aunt" Annie Ruth tonight and wanted to let you know that she is and has always been one of the kindest, most loving, down-to-earth person I have had the privilege of knowing. When we moved to Bell Buckle way back in 1948 the Douglas family met us on our way to our new home. We were fortunate enough to live just down the road from them. What wonderful memories I have of times spent with a wonderful family.

    I'm sorry I missed the article about your meeting with Aunt Annie Ruth. We were out of town at the time it was published. I will check with the T-G office and hope to pick up the issue it was in.

    I'm sure you received quite a blessing from the brief time that you spent doing your interview. You certainly could not have chosen a better subject!
