Wow, 103 1/2! I can only imagine what she has seen and done and lived through in her life. I believe she has lived a life to be celebrated and missed by all who knew her. Praying for for Marc and Debi and their family. Love you both!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ms Ruby’s family! I have many fond memories of her from SCDS and vividly remember walking into the old gym at lunchtime and seeing her in the kitchen area with a smile on her face. My parents and Ms Ruby were there together for many years and knew each other well! What a life well lived! Wow, 103 1/2!!! May she Rest In Peace!

I have many years of memories with Mrs. Bacon. She was such a good friend of mom’s at SCDS and always there overseeing our lunches. She remembered my name till the end. She was also a long-time member of my church and was blessed to have Marc and Debbie to care for her.

What a great person and wonderful life. I took my boxed lunch to school but I would trade out my stuff when there was apple crisp! Still remember those little milk bottles in the old gymnasium cafeteria. RIP.

- Chip Goldsmith, Savannah, Georgia

Truly a wonderful woman! Always a kind word to all. She was wonderful to her brother, Henry - my late father in law and my late mother in law too. She welcomed me many many years ago to the family and I will always cherish the many recipes she shared with me. Our thoughts and prayers to Marc and his family.
