Ruby was very special to me. She taught me to sew pillows and many different things. She was so multi talented it was amazing. I know there must be thousands of people who have finished pillows, bell pulls, door stops and so many other items in their homes she made or finished for them. My children have Christmas stockings she made just for them. ( Stevie and Ben Hunt.) All of her work was perfect, flawless. She did everything right. I went to see her last year when I heard she had been sick. We shared old times and laughed a little. I will never forget you Ruby, you are such a very special lady. God richly bless you and all of your family. Libby Hunt Steele
