I am truly sorry for your great loss. Your mom, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt was and will always remain a special part of your lives and in your hearts. As a family, you gave her a beautiful and heartfelt farewell service, with a loving and touching eulogy. Her legacy will continue to shine everyday through you.

I will truly miss hearing her tender loving voice, seeing her smiles, and spending time with my dear friend, Ruby. We shared a fond friendship over so many years, celebrating birthdays with the girls, catching up on life, enjoying a glass of wine, shopping at Winners, talking about Wasaga Beach and our English gardens. Ruby has touched by heart forever and I will keep her precious memory alive. What a beautiful world we would live in if everyone had a bit of “Ruby” in them.
May God bless you Ruby with eternal life in the heavenly garden of paradise.
With Love, from friends of your family, Janice and Stacey xoxo.

Ruby was so special. I was blessed to meet her and get to know her over the years. She was always so sweet, kind and full of positivity. I loved visiting with her and hearing her stories. She was a treasure and will truly be missed.

Thank you for giving me the privilege of knowing her. I truly loved her. May her beautiful light live on.

Rest in eternal peace Ruby xox Kathy

The Wasaga Beach visits to their cottage were so very cherished by John and Wendy.....times when you could hug your mother. Being able to be physically with Ruby this past week would have been a great comfort to the family. She will be missed.
