The family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our friends at Tender Care whose loving kindness reached through the haze of dementia to touch Ruby's heart again and again for the last nine years, and to our friends from Hospice Plus who cared for her as gently as if she were their own.
The family will receive friends from 9-10 a.m. at Bellaire United Methodist Church.
