So very sorry to read about my Sweet Ruby. One of the sweetest ladies I have ever known I loved her so very much. We had so much fun in Concord ( back in the day) racing our lawn mowers.. Such a sweet spirit. She loved her children and grandchildren. You will all be in my prayers.

(Psalms 90:10) In themselves the days of our years are seventy years; And if because of special mightiness they are eighty years, Yet their insistence is on trouble and hurtful things; For it must quickly pass by, and away we fly. University Park, Illinois
