Hi Bob,

It’s been many years since I heard your name and was saddened to come across it this way. I remember a very young you and Ruby living in Mom and Dad’s basement suite years and years ago. I always remembered Ruby’s beautiful name. Hoping for the best for you and family moving forward. 604-289-0813

It was a shock today to hear from Linda C of Ruby’s sudden passing. I met her many years ago in my home town of Abbotsford. Also at many Randy Friske Concerts etc. She was a gentle caring thoughtful grand lady, too young to leave us. mister Blake/mister Blake foundation. www.misterblake.com
