A lady in Navy costume and burgundy pipe worked in the elevator, announced their floor and opened the brass-

Ruth\'s father told the sales lady that they needed to buy a dress for Amy.
\"It might help if she comes in and tries it on,\" she said after helping them find it for a while.
Roy Naboo pulled the sales lady aside and whispered that his wife, the mother of the child, was in St. Joe\'s that day.
The sales lady looked at Ruth and Bruce and managed to say very sorry, she cried.
Roy comforted her.
Then she cheered up and continued to help the family.
