Ruby always made me laugh during our conversations. She was a kind, caring friend and was family to me. I remember Ruby and Raul coming to see my newborn the day after he was born and she would always ask about him. She was so beautiful inside and out and I am going to miss her so much. Rest In Peace, Miss Ruby. Prayers are with Raul and his family at this time.

Raul and family:

Our prayers for healing and the peace that passeth all understanding for you and your family on the passing of Miss Ruby. While we know she is in a better place and no longer suffers from any earthly afflictions, it is still tough to let loved ones go. You honor her daily by how you live your lives, and know that you will see her again.
