ADD A MEMORY

Dear Pat and family,
There are no words that can express my heartfelt sympathy for you. The loss of a mother is so significant it is hard to describe.
I loved looking through all of your family photos. They brought back memories of a time so many years ago when we were inseparable. Seeing pictures of your Dad may me think of his pint of beer in the evening. The trips to the lake when the passenger seat was rotated. They are some fun memories. The sleepovers in the “dining room” area and a memorable round shower curtain ring.
As I browsed the family photos it was easy for me to determine who your siblings were as adults. They may have changed due to the years but there was always something special about each one. Your Mom was such an elegant lady and as she aged and I saw pictures of her stunning grey hair I would think she looked so regal...so beautiful!
May the waves of grief pass quickly and be replaced with a smile each time you think of your mom. Find comfort in knowing that she will always be fondly remembered and or loved by the many people she touched in her life.
Love,
Annie and Tom

Although you have been tethered to this world, you left us many years ago.
We will miss seeing you but knowing you are where you wished to be gives us some comfort.
I miss talking to you and that first year when that early morning call for my birthday..."Happy Birthday, honey! Am I your first call?" did not come, that was the first realization that you were gone from me.
I hated that you were robbed of your memories of Dad and all of us and that "better place" is what you deserve.
OUR FAMILY CHAIN IS BROKEN, AND NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME; BUT AS GOD CALLS US ONE BY ONE THE CHAIN WILL LINK AGAIN.
I love you, Mommy and will miss you... till we meet again....your daughter, Gail

My brother, Chuck, was blessed when he and Gail Ruby married. He joined a large, loving and devoted family. He and my dear parents, Catherine and Charlie, were embraced lovingly by the Ruby Clan. Gloria and Jim Ruby were a fun loving , delightful family overflowing with love for their children and their extended family. May God continue to love and protect the Ruby Family. May the wonderfully joyful memories of all that they shared comfort them now and always. Gloria, please hug my precious Mom & Dad and my first beautiful niece. Colette, your three sweet baby girls are doing well, happy, however missing their Mommy. Heartfelt sympathy to you all from me and my children.
