My heart is filled with sadness. Ruben was a great joy to be around, . Losing a child of any age is not an easy path to walk. He will forever be an angel following you and guiding you. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Sandy, Bill, Gerald and his extended family. My condolences on your loss. We all knew the day was coming. In fact we knew we were on borrowed time with Rueben and yet it still doesn’t seem real. I know you have many memories and I pray that those memories are what get you through this difficult time. I once read that grief is the price we pay for loving someone & I know that Rueben was loved deeply by all of you. Sending you all big hugs & prayers.

Ruben was my dear friend. He helped my wife and I when we needed it by taking time to do the selfless act of bringing my wife to see me on several occasions. His heart was kind and his beautiful was called to heaven too soon. I love you my purple haired friend. Rest in peace buddy
