holding  her  presence  close

and her enduring spirit
Ruby Alice Blackman
20 July 1998 - 3 October 2014
16 years old

I was Ruby's French teacher during her brief time at Hillsboro. Some of her Hillsboro friends, as well as a friend from USN who I have in class now, remembered her this morning. Despite the years it has been since I taught Ruby, she remains a bright and unforgettable light in my memory. Today, as with every day, our thoughts and prayers are with Ruby, her family, and her friends.
