I'm so very sorry to just hear of Reuben's passing. He and I worked for the same broker when he was a Realtor.
Always smiling and gave me a warm hug and kiss. He was a delightful person and I just knowing he is no longer with us, breaks my heart.
Rest In Peace Reuben, you were a kind soul who brought joy to everyone who knew you.
May God comfort his love one.

Alive in Christ, together in memory. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others , it is not self-seeking,it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trust,always hopes, always perseveres. 1Corinthians 13:4-8. Reuben heart was too loving for this earth. I will always love and honor him.
