Sandra and family, Ms. Ruby was the sweetest resident I EVER had the pleasure of taking care of in a Nursing Home. She was AlWAYS at the front door of BPNC when I came to work with a smile, and always said to me "Hello pretty lady". We had a great relationship, and she loved my little dog "McKenzie". I wish I had been with her at the end...She was blessed to have you, Cindy and her sister care so much for her while she was at BPNC..She is surely one of God's Angels. God Bless You All. DEE
