“I love u Ruby Turner” as did anyone who knew u. U. You were always so always so special to us- Odell, Charles, Chuck, and Doris as you were to everyone. Families do not always stay in touch as they should, but our hearts do not stop loving. We have lost an Angel, but Heaven has gained another! May God Bless.
