Just want to extend my sincere sympathy to Debby and all of Rubys family. I have known ruby and Elmer and debbyv as a neighbor for most of my life. As a small child seeing them at the ball park growing up then as years later ruby was a caregiver for my mother She was such a family friend for as long as I can remember. Many people will miss her soft spoken ways and friendly smile
