I loved Aunt Ruby all my life. She was kind, funny, and such a sweet person. I was so fortunate to spend a week at a time with her in the summers when I was a little girl. It was some of my favorite Childhood memories!!!
I will never forget the last time I got to visit her in the nursing home. Last Christmas, 2019. We talked and talked. She shared a lot of memories of my mom Marie, I laughed a lot during that visit.
I will forever love her and cherish my time with her. She sure did love my husband. Junior as well. He thought she was a very sweet lady.
Ruby, we will miss you like crazy. We love you.❤ My heart hurts.
The picture was of us last visit!!!!
