Don't get mushy on me

One afternoon while Ruth was in Hospice, I was brushing her hair to relax her and thought she had finally fallen asleep. I kissed her on the cheek and whispered "I love you Ruthie" and to my surprise she replied "Don't get mushy on me." I told her she wasn't the boss of me and I could if I wanted to and she laughed. I will miss that laugh for a long time.
