To Ruby Steck family,

Just want to let you know I have been thinking of you all and praying for you.  I have enjoyed Ruby for the last 9 ½ years of the 14 she had been here at Heartland of Marysville.  She has always been special to me.  I did her hair for 8 ½ years and her nails.  She loved her long nails.  I remember the time she had her stroke and she had on green nail polish.  I came over to the hospital to see her and she could not talk very plain and we weren’t sure how her mind was because of the stroke.  I think it was Becky and one of the nurses were in the room with Ruby and we talked about her nails and she kept saying something.  All of a sudden I caught what she was saying and I started to laugh. She was saying Alien, and that was the name of the color of polish she had on.  I new then Ruby’s mind was fine.  I would talk to her and tell her that story and she would laugh.  It was fun to take in her mail to her the days she got her Globe and National Enquire.  She loved to read about the movie stars.  I always called her Heartland’s little troll, I started that when she was still walking around. Sometimes her hair would stand on end and she was so short, she reminded me of those little troll dolls. She would laugh.  I would tell her I think it is time to do your hair.  

I wish I could have come to see her and to express my sympathy to you in person but I could not.  Thank you for letting Ruby be a part of our Heartland family.

Terri Holland,
