I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Rubie,please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I have memories of playing on the mud hill & then we would go in to eat Aunt Rubies cabbage rolls & boiled potatoes dirty as we were.Glad I got to meet her again in later years when she came to help with Mother.She was a very gentle lady-reminded me of grandma.
