    Wayne, Sue and family- we are so sad to hear about the passing of sweet, sweet Mrs. Ruby. She will always have a special place in our hearts because she was like ‘another mother’ to so many through the years growing up at Five Points Baptist. You never saw Mrs. Ruby that she didn’t have a smile on her face and joy in her heart. She was truly a woman of God. May you rest in the knowledge that she is now with her beloved Mr. Clayton and Gene. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. We love you all.
