To all my cousin's family:  Ruby will be greatly missed.  I remember so much about all of us getting together when ever mom and dad brought us to the 'country'. Loved playing with all the cousins and listening to all the aunts and uncle talk.  I will not be able to be there today but my thoughts and prayers are with you.  If there is anything I can do for you let me know.  Love to all.

We will so miss coming down to visit her.  She was a gem.  She would love to get out her quilts and show them off, and we think of her every time we make her "tomatoe ketchup" recipe.  Please except our condolences.
