I never met Ruby, but my sister, Teresa Garrett, spoke to me of her, very lovingly. So sorry that such a sweet person has to be gone from your lives. You have my most sincere condolences. Rest in peace Ruby.

Ruby was one of the most loving, careing, kind people I have ever known. I had the honor of spending time with her in her last months. She was also the bravest person I have ever known. She never complained but was just thankful for another day. Friendships like ours only come along once in a lifetime. There is an emptiness that will never be filled. Prayers for the family in the coming days.
