Rest in Peace Dear Auntie Ruby. I will always see your beautiful smiling face.
A beautiful soul has departed for heaven. May God bless and comfort the loved ones she leaves behind; Nellie, Linda, Alex, Gloria, & Little Ruby. My Nina was a vibrant and loving person. She will be missed and she will Forever be in our Hearts.
I just want to give my condolences to the Martinez family. I had the wonderful honor of getting to know Ruby and in the short time we did have together she made my day every time I saw her. She definitely taught me how to appreciate the little things in life and the people who are truly there to help you through those rough patches. May she rest in peace❤️
Thank you Nana Ruby for always treating me like family. I Love you and will miss you. My condolences to the family.
Ruby was a light from Heaven for our family. She was my mother’s best friend for more years than I can count. Ruby was a rock and cared deeply for all of us even if we were not family by blood. I will always remember her sense of humor and how she loved to dance. Ruby was one of the most gracious people I have ever known.
Losing your mother is the hardest thing in the world. After she is gone not a day will pass you will not think of her. every day something will remind you of her. At first it will hurt and as time passes your memories will be soften and become cherished.
Nellie, Linda, Alex and Gloria my prayers are with you and your families.. God Bless all of you
