Dear Garland, Ronnie, Gordan & Families…
We were so sorry to hear about your Mom. We were out of the country when we received the news or you know we would have been there for the funeral.
We know you will miss her very much, but you will have many fond memories to relive and share with each other.
Ruby was an exceptional Lady, Mom and Grandmother…she talked so proudly of you all. She is now with her Lord and R. D., so you know she is happy!
Please accept out heartfelt condolences.
With our Love,
Ron & Toni
