Happy Birthday, Ruthie

My Dear Aunt, my Dad's sister, will be 87 on August 9th. Happy Birthday!! Dear Aunt Ruth. Daddy called her Ruthie, so I sort of call her that now that he is no longer with us!!!! Ruthie lives in  a convent in Ohio and sure could use a ton of prayers for herself and the Sisters caring for her! Dad's older sister, Dorothy, is 96 and lives in the home where the Aunts that raised Dad and Dorothy spent their summers so many years ago in upstate NY. Daddy lived to be 93+ and I wonder if I will have their longevity!
On to the card...I followed the sketch challenge at Just Rite stamps.
