Ray, Beth and Anna,
We are keeping you in our thoughts. Ruby's smile is our favorite memory of her. Whenever we saw her at your house or when we all went out to eat, her eyes always seemed to light up with happiness and she welcomed us with a smile. Hope your memories of Ruby, her laughs and smiles give you comfort always.
