Uncle Rudy,
My heart is sad because you are no longer here. I pray that you are in Jesus’ kingdom living a wonderful eternal life in heaven. Please say hi to my grandpa Carlos and grandma Connie. I have a ton of memories of grandpa going by to see you and picking up eggs from you. I was my grandpa’s sidekick from time to time and it was nice to see you even it was just for a little bit. I also couldn’t forget about my great uncle Rudy when my company had a Christmas luncheon at the Frost Bank building. I made sure to bring some Christmas cookies for you before rejoining my work group upstairs. You will be missed by so many people. Love always, your great niece.

My husband and I worked at Frost Bank and knew Rudy for over thirty years. He loved his job and you could tell. He greeted everyone with a big smile and respect. He would always have something nice to say or laugh if you made a joke.
Our sympathy to his family for the loss of such a special and caring family member and friend to all.
Rest in peace.
