I was at Mimi's house and it was Christmas day and I was trying to take some pictures with a new camera. Without anyone introducing us, I was relatively new to the family, Rudy approached me and began to explain in detail and gently how to use my new camera. I appreciate your kindness. It was a pleasure to meet you. Rest in peace. To the whole family Quiñones, my most sincere condolences. I feel very sorry for your loss.

I was blessed when Rudy became my Uncle back in 1984. He was always so cool and I really looked up to him. I would love when he'd come to visit and he even baby (teenager) sat me when my parents would go out of town. He was not only my Uncle, but became one of my best friends. I say that because only a best friend would talk you out of wearing something that made you look heavy. I'm sure I rolled my eyes at him, but he was right. He gave me advice on boys (God Bless him on that topic), I'm sure I rolled my eyes as usual, he'd shake his head, but once again he was correct. I eventually moved away to finish college and didn't see much of Rudy anymore, that always made me sad. I will always cherish every moment I was able to spend with him. I hope he knows even though I rolled my eyes at him, deep down inside I listened! I love you Rudy, this isn't goodbye, this is only see you later.

We are deeply saddened by the news of Rudy’s passing. Our families go back decades. Rudy was literally a friend from birth! We have many fond memories of Rudy’s fun-loving personality. We had countless good times with Rudy through the years with dinners at Jacala, family gatherings, parties, trips, concerts, hunting, fishing, and just hanging out! We will truly miss his great friendship. We will keep his memory in our minds and hearts. May he rest in peace.

Our thoughts are with the dear Quinones family during this sad time. May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days.
