I know Ruby from Spring Creek Gardens. I was the Activity Director - I remember so many wonderful things about Ruby - she was kind - always helping others - she was quite - but enjoyed going to the library to sing - she always had her outfits picked out so nicely - the ladies always gave her such nice compliments - I remember her always wanting her tomatoes in a bowl - she'd add a little water and plenty of hot sauce - her smile was one in a million - though she is no longer with us - her memory lives on - in all those lives that she touched.. I miss her Christina MacDowell, February 13, 2009 Dearest Kathy, My thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time of loss in your life. I have such wonderful childhood memories of our friendship. Your mother was one of the most gracious, southern ladies I've ever known. Love, Melba Melba Morris, July 2, 2008
