"My loving son Rubio,
I am very happy for the short time we spent together. Also for the accomplishment you made in Atlanta in just two years. I can not believe you left us so soon to be with the lord. I will miss talking on the phone every day with you. God needed another angel and he picked you. You are gone, but will never be forgotten. I love you, Rest in Peace.

"Dear Uncle Butch, I know you wondered and struggled with a lot. I want you to know you are loved, wanted and we are sooooooooo proud of you. You always had a light that that never went out. We always saw the best and that inner light sometimes you didn't think that was there. It was like we saw the light but you couldn't see that reflection. I'm happy you see that light. You where always in everyone prayers and heart. Lets erase the past and things that where assumed or caused pain. They say lets forgive and forget. I will miss the daily reminder of your presence but I will never forget that light that will live in you forever."

""Brief were my days among you, and briefer still the words I have spoken.  But should my voice fade in your ears, and my love vanish inn your memory, then I will come again, and with a richer heart and lips more yielding to the spirit will I speak. Yea, I shall return with the tide, and though death may hide me, and the greater silence enfold me, yet again will I seek your understanding"  The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran. Rest in Eternal Peace Rubio until we meet on that golden shore."

"Dad words can't express the pain I feel. I know you are in a better place, because God came first on your journey. I am happy you made the decision you made to change your life around. I remember the week of my wedding when you met Terrence Jr for the first time, your eyes light up with joy. It warmed my heart that Terry and myself birth 2 beautiful grandsons for you to enjoy. The conversation we had will always stick with me, "I told you if you don't want to change for yourself do it for your grandson." It took a few years after, but you made that important journey. I truly miss hearing your voice, saying "Hi Honey." If a day went by without you calling I know something was wrong. Your kind nature will always live on. I miss you dad very much. Rest assure I will continue to make you proud, and raise your grandchildren to be
respectful men."

Listening to you talk about your  visits with   Marsha  and  your  mother  with such joy and happiness was always heartwarming and I knew meant the world to you. I thank God  for giving me the  opportunity to be apart of your journey in finding yourself and him.

"THANK YOU to our cousin Julia "Sis" Bennerson, for taking such good care of Rubio from the day you met him, over 2 years ago. I remember you calling to ask me if I knew who Rubio Finch was and excitedly told you "Das my brother"! From that day on, he was your brother too. You watched over him (and his progress) like a hawk. Words cannot express the depth of gratitude we feel for all you have done to the very end. You are now officially Molika and Marsha's "Big Sister" (I would say auntie, but you're looking too young ok?)... We could not have done this without you. We love you and will keep you and your family forever in our prayers. "THANK YOU"!!!"

"My brother "The Trooper"!... He turned the worst of times into the best of times. My heart was full every time he called to see how we (at home) were doing. I heard in his voice for the first time in many years "pure joy" - He accomplished his goal and more importantly, he reconnected with family and accepted the Lord. He never looked back. I love and will forever miss my brother. His warm heart, sense of humor and yes, his forwardness. I trust and obey and know that the Almighty has greater plans for him. Farewell my brother Rubio, until we meet again."
