Tribute to Memaw

Memaw went to be to Jesus early Wednesday morning. She fought a long battle with Alzheimer's. Ruby Nell was a fabulous cook, a faithful wife, loving mother, grand-mother and great-grand-mother. I learned A LOT of great things from her (but unfortunately, not her ffast metabolism) but I did get her love of cooking and always being the hostess. Her specialties were fried garlic bread, pecan pie and chocolate pie. She LOVED her sweets!
