I remember Miss Ruby as a welcoming, jovial, sophiscated yet down to earth example of a true lady of grace. She was very talented and had a gift for gardening. I have very fond memories of the time that she was a part of my life. I have a gift from her that I treasure to this day. A wonderful scrapbook of memories from a huge milestone in my life. But I am most grateful for being blessed by knowing her, experiencing her kindness and grace and eating at her table sharing the delicious meals she prepared for her family with love.
