Todd and I send our deepest condolences on the passing and Home Going of Mrs. Ruby. She was an important part of our church and will be truly missed. We will keep you all in our prayers. (This picture is from Mother's Day 2019 and our Mother's Breakfast at OFWC. She did not want her picture made. I think one of the girls snapped it anyway.) She was faithful and will be missed.
