I loved to talk to Ruby on our Sundays at Becky and Jerry's house. We all went over for a good meal. Ruby and I found out a lot about each other during these talks. I found Ruby to be a very loving and kind person. We bonded with each other during these talks. I knew she cared about me, and I really cared about her. I loved Ruby, and will miss her. Now I have no one to tell all my problems to.
