Hi, I am one of Ruben's daughters, how can i start by describing my father i dont think theres enough words to describe him. He was a great father who divoted his life to his family and his love for music and entertaning people. He work in the radio station most of his life and he hosted many festivities, but most important he had a real big heart when it came to his friends or anybody who needed help in anyway, thatz why i think he had so many friends, because he was always known to do what ever to give a hand .

 My father started to get sick a few years ago, they did not let us know what he had until about 2 years before he died they said he had cirrohois to the liver which cause him to devolp a condition called encephalothophy which also makes ur blood not to clot right so u have to avoid any falls,but doctors didnt know the cause because he was never an alcohalic. I tried everything I could to try to get him a liver transplant, but in the process he had to be in a temp. rehap hospital for closer care, but by there negligence my father had a few falls that they didnt report to us or transfer him to a hospital knowing his condition. the last fall was the worst, he had bleeding in hes brain and fell into a coma. I had a wedding planned, but the doctors claimed he was not going to make it. Of corse my dream was for my daddy to walk me down the aile but it wasnt going to happen, so instead I got married by his bed side in his I.C.U room in da hospital. A few weeks later he woke up and said he heard the wedding. It made me so happy, but then he fell back into a coma and started to have some seizures, the doctors said he had no brain activity and we should make a decision 2 remove the breathing machines, I was hes proxy but I just couldnt except that fact that he was going 2 die and I was sure not in the right state of mind to make that decision...so my family had 2 make it ..am killing my self by thinking maybe he would of survived that, but my family says he was some what brain dead and they didnt want him to suffer anymore..he died at only 53 years old. I dont feel the same anymore i dont think I'll ever!!! I just pray for the lord to help me except the fact that hes gone and that it was hes time.. I LOVE U DADDY!!! I MISS U SO MUCH!!!



He was always sooo happy and full of life....i can still remember taking this picture like it was ye




Hero Dad

                                                        You are my hero, Dad
                                                  You're my secure foundation.
                                           When I think of you, I'm filled with love
                                                       And fond appreciation.

                                                You make me feel protected;
                                                 I'm sheltered by your care.
                                                  You're always my true friend;
                                               When I need you, you're always there.

                                                    You have a place of honor
                                                     Deep within my heart.
                                            You've been my superhero, Dad,
                                                 Right from the very start.


My mom and I excepting a award from the radio station my father worked for many years deticated to m
My siters and me siting on my daddys lap, the day of his honering.

Dad...so many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name;
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.

What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child;
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.

What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you;
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.

Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in my turning...it seems
the sound has been erased.

Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don't fit.

Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
I'd tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.

Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.

Today, God, as You are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.




You never said i'm leaving
You never kissed me goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
 And only god knew why
A millon times i needed you,
A millon times i cried
If  Love alone could have
saved you
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no none could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didnt go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.
