Absolutely love this! Great story and rich with emotion, from the sack cloth dresses to the new store bought ones; along with the wonderful relationship between you and your Aunt Ruth. What an opportunity for you both, to be with her as she was taken home. Good Job!

I love your rendition of this relationship. Artfully told.
This is a beautiful tribute to Aunt Ruths everywhere.

you do need to make sure you use punctuation. I noticed a spot or two without any. The first one was at the end of the first paragraph.

But I can imagine Aunt Ruth would tell you to not get upset over the little things in life, just fix it and don't give up. So I will echo that, just keeping writing the way you feel God is calling you to write!

I live in Iowa and I have an Aunt Ruth! :) Never had sack dresses though, but anyway ...

There was a lot of "telling" in this story, but I enjoyed it. You had me curious about meeting Aunt Ruth and finding out what she was really like. And the ending was just lovely! I felt like I was snuggled up next to warm fireplace, listening to the narrator tell stories of her Aunt Ruth.
