To the Hamilton Family, I am sorry to hear of the passing of Rubye. I met the Hamilton family in the 1960s while I was a student at Young Harris College. Mr. Hamilton was the Post Master. I remember visiting in their home which was near the college. Also, remember meeting Rubye when she worked in Sylva. I have good memories of your parents and appreciate their kindness to me. I know you will miss your parents very much. With love and sympathy, Tommy Fouts

My parents moved away more than ten years ago. My mother (now well into her 80s) always spoke tenderly (and sadly) of missing her Sylva church, and of missing Bobbie and Rubye.
