In loving memory of my sweet cousin Ruby. Ruby your smile always "lit up the room" whenever you were near. I recall, as young children we were always "partners" in all of the games we played on those Sunday afternoon visits our families enjoyed. I remember especially our visits when I would visit on my trips from Denver - those visits were also always so fun and lighthearted. I will miss you Ruby - now you are dancing with the angels dear cousin. Rest in peace sweet lady,
