Aunt Ruby was a beautiful woman with a heart of gold. When my two boys were little, she watched them while I was at work. She put everything and everyone in front of herself. She was so amazing. Now you are with your loved ones above especially your sisters Ginny and Shirley you loved to talk with over that morning cigarette.
Love you Ruby
Your niece Cheryl
