Rubin was a wonderful brotherinlaw. We remember when he came to visit us in Georgia when I was in the Ranger dept. I took him there so he could see how the Rangers trained. He had a great time. Our visit was wonderful with him, Alma and our beautiful Sabrina and Checy We had a lot of fun as a family in following years. He continued to be a loving part of our family as well as my Mom and Dad, and sisters and their families. Your the ver best Brotherinlaw. RIP. All our love.
