As members of Rebas faith family of Jehovahs Witnesses, we had become quite fond of Rubin around the time of Rebas passing. He was always so congenial and hospitable, with such a tender heart. We pray that he is now in Gods memory, awaiting the time when Christ, the resurrection and the life, will restore him to life in perfect health. (John 11:25, 26)

Joyce,So sorry about the loss of your father. We know it is a very sad time and you will never be the same. We were unable to come last night because Rod's youngest sister,Robin was in icu at Fort Sanders. She passed away this morning so we are trying to deal with a lot too. Rod always talked about how your Dad made such good doughnuts at work. we are thinking of you and your family. Roger and Lorene.
