I only remember wonderful things about Mrs. Stiba. She was always very happy all the time. She once asked me to paint a figure of the Stay Puft Marshmellow man from Ghostbusters. I was happy to paint it for her, and she was so happy to get it when I finished it. I felt glad it made her so happy, and looking back I am very glad I was able to provide her something that pleased her so. My condolences to the entire family as they had always been wonderful to talk to.

Ruby made a pair of burp-up cloths after our first son was born back in 2016. Now that he's 3, he's found a new use for them : liturgical vestments. He and his little brother wear those cloths practically every day when they play Mass at home.

We're sorry for your loss, Franklin.

Prayers from Lithuania,

My sincere condolences to the family. I only, met your Mother once at a grocery store in Pflugerville. However, I could tell, she carried a caring, kind and genuine persona about her that radiated, despite her health issues. What a very strong woman. Rest in peace.

Dear Frank and the wonderful Stiba Family,
How you already miss Ruby, wife, mom, mother-in-law, grand-
mother, matriarch, and friend. You were her world and her joy. She also knew she was a Beloved Daughter of God and as she was dying, she knew she was on her way to Heaven to meet God. I believe she is there now, delighting the other holy souls. She was one of the best friends I have ever had and we both said that our friendship is forever. My heart aches and my soul rejoices right now. Ruby, I love you forever.
Sister Barbara
