To the family,

Rueben is at peace. Think of the good times and smile. For comfort read Ecclesiastes 3:1-15,17,19,20,22. Reuben had not too long retired before I came on GPD but we talked often. May The Creator bring you peace during this time.

Mr. Roy, always there. He always had a smile on his face. I would give him a hug, he would hug me back. He had something funny to say, every Sunday. My deepest sympathy to the family. Your Brother, Uncle, Cousin, Friend, will be missed, by everyone that knew him.
