Ruby was a dear friend of my Mom & Dad...Elwyn & Jane Palmer. As a little kid when we lived next door to Ruby & Jim, on the road behind Palmer's Garage, (my Granddad) in the early/mid 40's I considered Ruby my second Mom. As we moved and moved and moved we always were in contact with Ruby & Jim. From my age of 8 to maybe 12 years old I would "work" at my Granddad's garage and I can't count the number of times, when I would miss-behave/screw up that Jim would discipline me as if I was his Son & as I grew older I'm sure I benefited from that "guidance". Martha (maiden name St. John...Center Point gal) and I will miss our visits with this FINE lady every time we were in Birmingham and will always hold her memory in our hearts.
