I have been thinking about Ruby and wondered where she lived. I remember playing cards with her, Don, Mike, and Judy and going to the Eagles lodge dancing.
Ruby was a wonderful friend and will be missed terribly.
May you be reunited with Don and Judy and the angels sure got a great lady when they took her home.

I remember living across the street from her and she took care of me one night after I had to much to drink at the age of 17. She was a very special lady always caring about others. Prayers for the family
