    Pat and Lonnie,
    Praying your family finds comfort in the many memories, you, and our family gathered through the years. I can still taste those wonderful meals, Aunt Ruby, made for our family reunions, and all the fun visits we had together.

    Love Ginny

    Pat, it is hard for the one left behind to go through this period of mourning. Just remember that your Mom is walking the Streets of Gold with no restraints now. Also know that the sun will come up in the morning and again the morning after that because God made everything and said , “It was good.” If we looked at death with His eyes, I expect we would call it a promotion to an exciting and wonderful place so grand that we don’t even have the capacity to dream about.

    May God bless and keep you and your family during this time.

    Don and Lavoyce Little

    Pat, Lonnie, Sherry and Kerry and families — What a beautiful picture of Aunt Ruby and good write up. I’m sure there is so much more you could have added to fill up 108 years! Aunt Ruby was one of those special people who loved to do for others and she has handed that legacy down to her family. She loved to cook and entertain and I always think of her when I have that pineapple, cottage cheese and pecan jello salad — hmmmm can taste it now! Lots of wonderful memories at Uncle Bob and Aunt Ruby’s in Greenland, playing with you and friends. We’re so blessed to have had her so long and I know she was anxious to get to her heavenly home. I’m so glad your family could be with her when she passed – that’s Holy Ground. Thanks for letting me share your mom with you. Hallejuah, she finally made it home after all these years! She’s probably telling the Lord, ‘what took you so long’! Love to you all.

    Dear Pat and Lonnie, I am seeing Ruby finally walking the halls of heaven; hearing and seeing everything there is to see. Thank you both for being such good friends to my sister Jody. I will always remember Ruby sharing her tiny room with jody all those years at City Hospital. Jody still talks about her and asks how is she doing. Jody remembered her birthday in November and wished she could have a piece of her birthday cake. I will talk to her soon about Ruby going to heaven with our mom and dad. It was great knowing Ruby in the last years of her life. Peggy and Joanne
