I will forever be greatful to Miss Ruby in helping us reconnect. Since the we had such wonderful and fun phone conversations and memories of your and Nancy's visit to Tucson was a dream come true. I'll never forget the Christmas you got a play gun with a cork and you taught me how to shoot and almost broke grandmothers china deer. Boy, I thought we'd be in big trouble but you covered for me and sweet talked us out of could have been a bad Christmas.
Again we reconnected while living in Gunnison, those were fun times.
I'll miss you Mike, but ever greatful for the memories we shared.
