I'm so sorry about Ruby. She and I watched our sons play many a little league baseball games. Blessings to you all.

Ruby and I often watched her son Dave and my son Mike play little league baseball in the summer. She was a good person and interesting to talk to. She was something of a clairvouyant especially regarding medical and warned me that Jaye had a shadow over his kidney. Not too many years later that kidney had to be removed. I think of Ruby at times and hope she didn't suffer. Bless all of you.
