Your mom was so special. I met her when I was 19 and she was 17. You were 8 months old and Gene (Claude Gene Sloan Jr.) 3 mo. old. I have photos of you as a baby. Ruby was a very wonderful, loving person that I am so blessed to have met. Please know her love is always around you and your brother and Joe and all her loved ones. There are not words enough to express my condolences to you and all her family.

At a time like this words can not heal what you are feeling. I just want you to know you and your family are in my prayers . I know your heart is empty, but heaven is a much brighter place with your Mommie dancing with God's Angel's.
