  2. We are saddened to hear the news of your precious mother. Our condolences to the family and if there is anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to let us know. I met Ruby in 1985 and she always had a welcoming smile and a positive attitude. She loved her daughters beyond words and her grandchildren were her beacon of light. Ruby will be missed by so many but the memories of her will last a lifetime.

  3. I was in total shock when I recieved the news. I will miss her. I know she will be looking down on all of us from heaven smiling at us in all we do. Tiege sends his condolences as well. We love you and will miss you. Until we meet again in heaven Aunt Ruby I prey you watch over everyone.

  4. I’ll miss Aunt Ruby fer sure. Every other week-end I’d go and mow her yard, and she’d always talk about how nice the yard looked and how much she hated those long tall single weeds that seemed to pop up over night. I will also miss the times I spent
    with her way after I was through mowing.
    No matter how dirty I was Ruby didn’t care,
    so We’d talk till the cows came home I do believe. And it really didn’t matter what we were taking about either.. She’d always tilt her head and have the biggest ol smile you ever wanted to see. Aunt Ruby, you have fun up there in Heaven & give Uncle Sammy Heck too!! RIP..
