Robin,
Bless you and your family at this time of mixed emotions.
I remember Ruby and Bob for all the time and devotion they put in at Farrar Memorial Baptist Church youth group.
They always did what they could to see to it that we had nice worship meetings and as dollars allowed, outings.
A few of the camping trips they took us on are some of my very fondest memories.
Thank you Ruby and rest well ;)
