To the Ruiz Children I want to dedicate a poem from an unknown author. It is titled Sit With Me.
Sit with me in sadness, Lord. Share with me my tears. Draw my longings heavenward, and soothe my restless fears. I don't ask you to take away the sorrow of my heart, not yet at least, the dawning day will surley chase the dark. I'll languish here a little more until the dawn appears. Just sit with me in sadness Lord, and share with me my tears. Don't forget that you Uncle Jr. and I are here...

Uncle Ficho, I know you are in a better place and that the memories we hold will carry us through. Thank you for being so good to me growing up. Your love was unconditional. I will cherish the memories I have and keep them close to my heart. Love you my cousins, God Bless you and comfort you during this difficult time.

Ruiz family, my thought and prayers ,ficho was my first pastor back home, I will miss him. He was my earthly spiritual father.

God full of mercy who dwells on high.
Grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence,

His resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden.
Therefore, the Master of mercy will care for him
under the protection of His wings for all time

God is his inheritance and he will rest in peace
and let us say Amen, and rejoice!! Our deepest...

You have left your mark in our home and in our hearts. From the sidewalk, patio, backyard wall, and to just visiting with us.

Martha says she could sit there and listen to you all day, you knew your bible very well. We love you brother and will miss you always. I pray you are at peace in your new home in heaven. Someday we will see each...

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

To my Ruiz family... Love you all so much, there are no words that will ever make this loss any better, I know! But hold close to your hearts all the wonderful memories. My Uncle Ficho was a wonderful Uncle and he will be greatly missed. Love you all sending lots of prayers your way!

My dear Ficho, your home with your son that you talked so many times about how your missed him, I am glad we spend time with you when we were in Las Cruces. You were loved by my children. You will be dearly missed. Love you, Lupe
