Dearest Cousins,

I love you all very much and I am so sorry to hear about our Uncle Ruben's passing. Through the sadness and pain of losing such a wonderful father, I know in my heart that you all know that he is walking on the streets of gold, most likely having a wonderful conversation with the Lord Jesus. Holding the hand of the love of his life, his precious wife Inez. What a wonderful picture I see as I visual them all together. I love Uncle Ruben and he and Aunt Inez impacted my life more than you may all realize. The love for the Lord that they so boldly professed, gives me the encouragement to do the same. Put the Lord first and all other things in life will fall into place. The Lord is great and He loves us all very much and He is the one that will get us through our sadness and pain. God is merciful and gracious. Thank you Lord for the many years you gave us with such a wonderful man. Our Uncle Ruben's legacy will forever live on.

God bless you all during this difficult time. I love you all very much!
