Ruby was one of my best friends. We enjoyed years of crafting, laughing, talking and serving our great God Jehovah together. She was always so young at heart. She loved her family and her friends. Her little house was so warm and homey, walking in and just sitting in her living room was like getting a warm hug. She was loved, respected, and cherished by all who knew her.
