I already miss you so much. Thank you for always being there for me and all other family members. Mom/Nana to the rescue no matter what. You've been so strong and tuff throughout yours and your love ones lives. It was a very emotional moment as we were right there by your side when you took your last breath knowing that you were there when I took my first breath. Thank you for learning the joy of working in the yard (wasn't happy some days as you got us up early in the morning) but it's cooler and learned the correct way to do things. Even moving your rock garden around the backyard. But all in all I'm very thankful for you always wanting me to be there by your side when needed. I'll always cherish our memories and carry you in my heart until we meet again!
Love you always,

Buddy and I were so sorry to read of Mrs. Ruby's passing. She was a sweet lady and we enjoyed her friendship when she lived on Apache Ln. and we owned a house close to her and Mr. Ray. She will be missed.
