These were my first pair of "ruby slippers." They are not my size any more but I still like them. My youngest sister Ivy has a friend named Anna-marie. But this was before her friend or her were born. Anna-maria had a grandma.Her grandma was the one who gave me these cute shoes! When our family first started to go to First Baptist Concord Church we met Miss Marie. Mom told Miss Marie how much I loved Dorothy And Miss Marie said that Mom should get me some ruby slippers. Mom said she wanted to but couldn't bring her self to do it.The next week Miss Marie brought something with her to church. She had bought me a brand new pair of ruby slippers! A while later she died. I was so sad.
