I loved her so much I just wish I could have gotten to be around her after I grew up and moved. As a Kid I loved going to Aunt Ruby & Uncle Don's House she always had my Little Red Chair that made out into a Bed that I slept on She was the sweetest Aunt a girl could have.... You will be missed Aunt Ruby..  I Love you.
