Here it is July 2020 and I just learned of Rubys passing. Heather, Tom, Harris I am so sorry Ive lost touch with all of you, for many years Ruby and I exchanged Christmas cards, and George and I came to visit her quite a while ago now. I think of all of you often and remember the family reunions at the farm, wonderful memories! Warm thoughts and hugs, hope you all are staying safe in these trying times. ❤ Cathy Haliburton

Rob and I were very sorry to hear about your mother, Heather. Given what an amazing woman her daughter is, I'm sure Ruby was an impressive role model. Wishing you warm memories as you work through this time of loss.
