My very best friend for more than 40 years. We had such great times together with both of our husbands and IH friends. She snd Harold were adopted members of my family. Due to my issues, I won’t be able to attend the viewing or service, but I send my prayers to Brant, and all of her family. May Our Lord give each of you comfort knowing she is now with Harold and at peace. Love to all!♥✝

My sympathies to the family.
I worked w/ Ruby @ IHC for 10 years in the Purchasing Dept. We bowled on the same team - Custom Tube. We played cards on our lunch half-hour break. Harold was an usher in our wedding. I considered them as 'good friends,' but lost contact when I quit IHC to take care of my 3 children. I always enjoyed their company.
