    We wish to express our condolences to the family of Mrs. Ruth Franklin Blair and let you know how appreciative we are for the positive impact she made on our lives. We are four sisters of the Tait family of Beatrice, Alabama and graduates of the Monroe County Training High School (J. F. Shields) where she taught.

    We take great pleasure in sending a tribute in Mrs. Blair’s memory. All of us can say, without reservation, that because of the mentoring we received from her at school and in the community,we were well prepared for the constantly-changing challenges of adult life, including managing our careers, maintaining our homes and raising our families. The four of us often remember her fondly, particularly when we boast to each other about a garment we’ve made or a cake we’ve baked.

    Mrs. Blair will forever be in our hearts and we will never forget what she taught us.

    In your time of lost we know there’re very few words that are comforting, however, we would like to extend our love for your family and Ruth. Although our friendship has been distant due to our health issues she has been and will always be a part of our hearts. May the love of God envelope your spirits and soothe your souls through this heartbreaking time. We love you, and our prayers are sincerely and continuously prayed.
