When we attended the Buddy Walk this fall, Ruby was not with us, but her Team was there in full affect. To my pleasant surprise, Ouie and both mom and dad came as well. I love that they came out to support, even with Ruby not there. In addition, they brought along a very special gift. Ruby's red dress, a little black purse, and a bow for her hair.
This was such a great gift because it had nothing to do with Ruby being sick, but everything to do with Ruby being Ruby. In true form, when Ruby puts the dress and the headpiece on, she loves it and carries the purse around with pride.
We are so grateful to have met some amazing people who have been infected by Ruby's spirit.
