You will remember him wearing his favorite Cowboys clothes and his fitted caps and chanclas.He was ready to live life , recently married , starting a new chapter in his book in life . Gone to soon to fulfill the next chapter's of his life . We were not ready to say goodbye. It has been painful with lots of grief and sorrow. We know we still had so much to share with each other .

I know Dear in my heart that Ruben James would not want us to be sad he’d want us too light it up and drink a budwiser . He would want us to remember him for his personality, his kindness , and his approach in life .

Celebrate his life . Take his memory with you . Pray and give thanks to the Lord , that we had a chance to know such a person like R.J.. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in Green Pastures. He leads me beside Quiet Waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right path, for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the darkest Valley. I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
