    Thinking of all of you during this sad time. I will always treasure the memories I have had with Ruby, all of the Birthdays we were able to share. We will all miss her smiles and love she gave to us all. I am sure that Ruby and my grandma Sylvia are having coffee every day and playing Kings in the corners every night again!!
