    I am so sorry to hear this,Ruby always made a point to talk to me at the family reunions. She was a great lady and will truly be missed. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to the visitation or funeral,my work schedule just wouldn’t allow it. My prayers are with the family,if you need anything let me know.
