Just got word that Cindy’s Gramma Ruby passed away this evening. 99 years old. She had not known most people for sometime, yet was in good health for her age. A sweet little woman who’s face I will always see in our grand daughter Arrabelle Ruby Ann, who carries her name and I can see Ruby in her bright blue eyes and the dark hair and impish smile.
Ruby was a tiny little women who always had a smile, tho’ she used crutches ever since I knew her. She had four son’s and a daughter, who is Cindy’s mother. Cindy was the first grand child and spent a lot of time with her grand parents. Matter of fact, she was pretty sure, as a young child, that she was the only real grandchild and wasn’t too happy when she had to share with her cousins!
Ruby told of her grandmother, who was a tiny little English born woman and in many way’s I believe Ruby was much like her. She always made me smile and will be missed.
RIP Gramma Ruby, the only Gramma I ever really got to claim also….
