    I met Ms Rubye in 2009 at Savannah Commons, she became a friend from the start. Her pride in her family was evident in the stories she told. She took a shine to my son in his BC JROTC uniform and would make him sit with her at every visit and joke on sharing a last name. I will hold those memories in my heart, she will be greatly missed.
