God has called Grandma Ruth. She will be missed by many. She was an inspiration to all of us to get up and keep dancing.
We met Ruth Reardon 10 years ago when she was a spry 79 year old rock n' roller! As the years went on she continued to come out to our shows and we adopted her as the bands Grandma, as did all of our fans. Even as the years rolled on she always found a way to get up and dance a couple of times a night.
She is gone but will never be forgotten. When we play Hang on Sloopy and Come a little Bit Closer we will know she is looking down and smiling. She inspired a phrase we would quote from time to time.
"You don't stop dancing because you get old, you get old because you stop dancing!"
