    Dear Sister-in-Law ‘s Family, Neice Jeane Gosey Shelby, and the Martins:

    Times get quiet difficult; we change; times change; however, I love you. All of the Essie Samuel and Granville Gosey’s family have been asking about Sister Ruby Neil everyday. We did not know how to see Ruby or get an update on her condition. I will send a “love offering “
    to you. Mrs. Shelby.

    Our hearts are saddened, yet we rejoice in knowing that Ms Ruby Nell is enjoying the presence of our loving God. She was truly loved in the Sand Jack community. She always made her way across the street to see RJ whenever he visited Gran ( Teddy). Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
