Ruby my special lady, I had the pleasure to work with Ruby for a few years before she decided to stop working. But she still came to visit us . Ruby and I shared some special moments , we loved our cats we shared stories of them, they were the love of her life besides her Family. I will miss your beautiful soul a special lady to me. Bless Cathy and the Family. May you find peace in your hearts . Donna Cooper
