Lots of Love and prayers sent your way during this time. Aunt Ruby was a very sweet sweet lady. I remember visiting her and Uncle Earl many times. Seems just like yesterday when Dad (Ed Tracy) died about a year after Uncle Earl. We love you all and wish we could be there. Our four children keep Greg and I extremely busy. Blessings to all.

I'm so sorry to hear of Aunt Ruby's passing. She was a wonderful lady -- I remember her sweet voice, her laugh and all of the good times we shared with her and Uncle Earl "pickin' and grinnin'" at Grandpa Murray and Grandma Clara Correll's house in my youth along with those Sunday lunches. ~I to this day still use the gorgeous quilt she made me over 20 years ago. Love and hugs to you all, Aunt Ruby will be missed and cherished.

Judy, I remember coming to your house around Christmas and your mom making endless batches of nut brittle for your dad's co-workers ! She was always kind & welcoming to me. I am thinking of you and your family. Jo Rankin-Evans
