Rudy was definitely some one you could talk to and it wouldn’t go any further that’s a characteristic hard to find. I definitely wish I would have gotten to know my cousin better. I will never forget all the wonderful times the kids and I had over there at Easter and the love of the family. Rudy was a class act that will surely be missed my mom had a special love for him and I think everyone that he came in contact with.

Rudy was a good man. He was able to talk sense to me about some things which I wasn't making good sense over. I am sorry for your loss.
