So very sorry to hear about Ruby. She was always apart of our family. She loved Grandma Evans, Alma, Lonnie and Mom. They always consider her their sister. I am sure I have pictures of her when she was young if you would like to have some. Please get in touch with me if you would like some and I will make sure you get them. May the memories you have help you through this time. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Love you to all.
