Tina, I'm so sorry to hear about Ruby - she was a good friend of my mother Nita Stamey. Ruby was a unique individual who had many talents and ideas. From knowing her and listening to her talk of her life, one of the most important things in her life was the experience of being your mother.Make no mistake, she loved you dearly. I know from the experience of losing my mother that there are really no words, but I want you to know that you and the children will be in my prayers.God is the only real comfort in this life, especially during this time. My number is in the phone book if you would like to talk. Please let me know when you do a memorial service I would like to attend if at all possible. God Bless! Love & prayers Sarah & Mike
