Mr Erick, Pat, Cathy, Gail, Randy, Erick, and Grandchildren, I write this with a very heavy heart and tears. I am in such shock. I just read about Mrs Ruby in the paper. She was a such a very special person to me and I looked forwarded to spending time with her every Saturday morning @ Weight Watchers. I loved being the person who walked her into the building and out after the meeting. It was such a honor for me to be able to do that for such a beautiful person and we had many great conversations in the parking lot about all kinds of subjects afterwards. Alot of time it was about her family and how proud she was of everyone of you and how much she loved all of you. It is so neat to me that I got to met Pat and Cathy at different times in my life and then I got to meet their wonderful mother later. I will treasure the memories of her always. May God bless you & watch over all of you and help you through this very difficult time. Love, Diane Bowen
