Dear Dorothy:
My sincere condolences to you & your family in the loss of your beloved Father.
Remember that Earth has no sorrow, that Heaven cannot heal; to be absent in the flesh is to be present in the Spirit!
May you bask in the many sweet memories you share together; know that you now have a Guardian Angel watching over you all!
Love you,

Papo, you were the type of grandfather that it didn’t matter low Long it was when I went to visit you and nana you would greet me with open arm and act like it was just yesterday when we last visited.
I will remember your stories and you showing the kids all your pictures. I will forever hold in my heart how you were there for me when my mom passed away you called me twice a day for two months just to make sure I was good.
You were and always will be an amazing tata you will be forever missed. And I will hold the memories in my heart. Give my mom a hug when you see her.

Condolence from Rocky Warinner on June 16th, 2019 5:28 pm

I can’ t remember when Ruben was not around. He was my Uncle Fred Warinner’s Best Friend as well as our Cousin Donny Warinner’s Faithful Side kick. They shared the common bond of both being proud Air Bourne veterans. He was a great story teller and always had exciting and interesting stories about his life adventures. We will surely miss him but I know he has moved on to his next great adventure.
Adios Amigo
