I’m so sorry to hear this! Ruben and I have been friends for too many years to count. No matter how much time had passed in between times we saw each other or spoke we picked up like we never left off, and he always had a smile and a joke. My deepest and sincerest condolences!! He truly had a beautiful and gentle soul. Rest peacefully my friend 😢
