Remember I'll always love you; Jesus said He did too.

    My prayers go out to the family of Sis. Ruby because I know that she was a Special gift only on loan from God to this earth. Especially to her family and friends. I know that she will be truly missed by everyone. Years back I went to church with Sis. Ruby, her sisters,(Ruth & Edith), & her neice, (Lavell) for several months and I never knew Sis. Ruby to be anything other than a beautiful,meek, and kind christian lady. She was surely a godly sister in the Lord and I know that her heart is home now, in the presence of King Jesus, where we too can meet again someday. Kathy, my prayers are with you and your family. I've already had to face this hurt of losing a mom and the hurt never ceases, it just gets further away. God Bless & comfort you all.
