Sandi, Tiffany, Scott, and Family, Your mom was a great person and was used by God to do great things. One was to assist in the care of my sister Edna. I thank God for Ruby being part of my sister's life, not only to take care of her but to love her. I imagine my mom right now is thanking Ruby for all she has done. May the peace of Christ be with all of you at this very difficult time.

Scott, Chris, Jeff and Girls, Sorry to hear of your MOM's passing sure had some fun at Thelma's get togethers. And what a cook. Never bowled with your family, but Charles sure did and always came home with some good stories to tell. He enjoyed bowling with you all and Ruby, and Roy, Ruth and Gil, Randy and all those ole time bowlers.You all must had a lot of fun and competition from what I understand. May God hold each of you in the palm of his hands during these days ahead.Rest in peace .
