My Dad, James Kyker, lived and grew up on the same road as Ruby and he mentioned the Blankenship family being a special part of his life many times. He also enjoyed the times that they attended Mayberry Church together. They were side by side in rooms for a brief time at Lakebridge Health Care Center. He was in room #603 and she was in #601. It is interesting how people can be apart in life and then right back together again. I'm not sure that either one of them knew enough in their minds that they were next door neighbors again. Daddy and Mama admired Miss Ruby and the entire Blankenship family. Daddy passed away just days before Ruby. I am so thankful for Ruby and her family for being special people in our lives. We can look forward to the return of Jesus and one day be reunited with our friends and loved ones! Sending prayers to each family member.
