Message: My father (Ronnie Isom) and I are so sorry to hear of Mrs. Ruby's passing. I grew up across the road from Mrs. Ruby and Mr. Proctor when they lived on the Hermitage Highway, and I loved them dearly. After Mr. Proctor's passing, Mrs. Ruby would often come over and stay for hours most Sunday afternoons--just to talk. We would hear a lot about her children and grandchildren. She was so proud of you. I also remember many summer afternoons that we spent with Mrs. Ruby. She, my grandmother (Mrs. Mary Hales), and I would sit all afternoon underneath the large oak behind my grandmother's house and shell beans, peas, or whatever was very plentiful in the garden that day. And I'll never forget Mrs. Ruby's peanut brittle that she made and handed out every Halloween. It was the best! The world lost a sweet lady when God called Mrs. Ruby home, but Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Again, my sincere condolences to you and your family.
