I have known Ruby I was 9 when she was my 5th grade teacher. Everyone wanted to b in her class bc she made learning fun. She would play the piano for us if we begged enough. Lol. Ruby, ik that u r no longer in pain and can breathe better now, but my heart wasn't ready to say goodbye. Ruby was always here for me, both as a mentor and a friend. So many memories; school, Wayne and of course J. C. U r so very loved and so very missed
