    Roseau, Mn My sincere sympathy goes to the family of Ruby . Ruby is my Great Aunt. I didn’t know her very well . But as I was a younger girl when I would Spend the summers with my grandparent’s I would clean motel rooms for her sometimes . And so it was then that I got to know Ruby and Vincent. My Grandparents were Carl and Alvina Herseth . My dad is Charles Herseth . May Ruby rest in peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Bless all her family in this difficult time. Leighanne
