You were born such a beautiful jewel
How could anyone be so cruel
Your life was spread before you
What wonderful things you would do

No one knows what you could have been
We can only wonder and pretend
You should have lived a long and beautiful life
Doing all kinds of things like riding a bike

You will never be able to do all these things
As your life was cut short by death’s sting
One you trusted to love and protect you - betrayed
And your last moments were spent afraid

We will light a candle to remember and send our love
You are a red star shining far up above
Glowing brightly with your Heavenly Father safe and sound
The most beautiful – prettiest – little Angel Ruby to be found

About this poem:
June 6, 2020 is the 1st Anniversary of the death of Baby Ruby. Still trying to find out what happened to her father - not sure if he is in jail or not. Drug rehab is not the full punishment for something as horrendous as this.https://ae01.alicdn.comUpdate 6/17/2019: They held a Candle Vigil at the St. Patrick's Cemetery where Baby Ruby was killed by her father. At the beginning they read my poem: Angel Ruby. I was not able to attend by listened to the video and sitting here crying. ......6/12/2019: I'm terribly upset. There was a 8 month baby girl about 1/2 mile away from where I live whose father raped, sexually assaulted her and killed her and she was found 25 feet away from shore in a pond. It blows my mind how a father can do this. So close to Father's Day but my guess is he won't win the reward for Father of the year. He is sitting in jail hopefully for life. And with his jail mates that life may not be so long. Her name was Ruby. Such a beautiful little baby.

moping moping so so sad this was not a human being at all, I do not in the main agree with the death penalty but this is needed in some things.

Madtat: I'm really stirred up by this who tragedy. I googled it and it seems this is a widespread story all the way to the U.K. And I only live a half a mile to a mile from the scene of the murder - just around the corner. If I had only known.....

Such a shocking news! Never thought such things were possible! Poor little angel! sad flower

Red - they read my poem at the Candle Vigil for Little Ruby Franciscovich tonight at St. Patrick's Cemetery where she was killed. I'm sitting her crying for what could have been for that little girl. crying For such a beautiful little baby girl's life to be cut so short.

LCBR: The Sun and the Mirror carried the story in the UK. The little angel's name was Ruby Franciscovich - the monster's name was Cody Franciscovich. There is a video on WEBO - Your Hometown Station Facebook site of the service - they read my poem before introducing the priest for the service. Children are not garbage to be thrown away. crying

Marikia: People have no idea of the conditions some of the wee ones live in. I worked at Social Services for 20 years and it is heart wrenching to see them. I was always wanting to take one home with me. I told a policeman yesterday that I saw that I only lived a half a mile away and if I had known what he was going to do - I would have gone over their with my baseball bat and he would be arresting me now. God forgive me - but to safe the child - I would have.

Thank you Kathy, NZ. It was 2 weeks ago and people around here are still in shock. It seems the news reached all across the country and across the pond to England. They read my poem at the Candle Vigil at St. Patrick's Cemetery where here father supposedly killed her. I was so humbled and honored that they did that. Video of poem reading at:
