My name is Jeff Lake and I grew up in Morton Grove with the Ruby’s.. I have such fond memories of Brian’s mom as I spent most of my youth either playing basketball in their backyard or football on the side of their home. Mrs. Ruby was such a caring and kind soul and always made sure we had enough food and anything else we needed. As the years went on Brian and I where roommates at The University of Iowa and I was his best man when he got married. My wife Holly and I are deeply saddened by her passing and know she will be dearly missed.
