Dear Judy, Della, Michelle, Renee, and family,We were so sorry to hear about Ruby's death. We have really fun memories of being with her at Thanksgiving in Denver. She made the utlimate spicy cajun turkey dinner for all the family. I visited her at her home with Judy, her childern plus her name sake, great-grand daughter , baby Ruby. We all had such fun. She cooked outstanding cajun food. It was wonderful! I also remember her little coffee bar on the counter of her kitchen. Great coffee! She would alway send us a pound of chicory coffee. I loved the cajun lilt to her speech when she talked. She call everyone Sug. It was very evident that the center of her life was her love of her family. She was a wonderful, sweet person and will alway be in our hearts.
