It broke my heart to hear about your mom. Ruby was the sweetest little lady .I always enjoyed our chats and our hugs. She would always tell me to “rest and have a good night ” but ” I’ll be happy to see you tomorrow ”
Every day she would ask ” Do I look presentable ? ” God love her she took great pride in her indendance and always looking her best .
She sure is missed by all of us lucky enough to be in the presence of such a classy lady .
