I didn't know Ruby all that well but I had the privilege to meet her through my best friend, Leslie. She had the sweetest disposition and loved having fun! I remember meeting up, by chance, at the beach. We ended up staying all day, listening to Kid Rock, enjoying drinks and having the best time! She will be missed. My deepest condolences to her family, friends and all who were touched by her gentle spirit. Rest with the angels, Ruby.

I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Ruby long but she was a very loving young lady. Her heart was big even as her body was growing tired and wiry. She told us how she hated being a burden on her mom all the time and how hard her mom worked to take care of her and how much she loved her for it. And she spoke of her son with fond words and very proudly. It's going to be a long time before we forget our trips with Ms.Ruby to dialysis and back. She has a wonderful laugh and bea6 smile. God bless and keep her. My condolences to the family.
