Today April 9Th would of been Rudy's 41st Birthday! Since his passing so many things have changed! But, one thing remains true he continues to live in our hearts and thoughts every day!
I have so many wonderful memories of Rudy..You probably don't know but, Rudy loved to play pranks especially on ME! For some reason I was a great target. Once,
he programed a radio alarm to turn on at about 3am UNDER MY BED! The look on
his face that morning was PRICELESS!
Another time, he put a bumper sticker on my car that read "I LOVE BILL" referring
to Bill Clinton! As soon as I saw that I knew exactly who it was! He would laugh
and with a smirk he would say "I promise that wasn't me!" Then there was the time when he hid my purse from me at the shop and I was going crazy looking for it! After
a while He said "I did it to teach you a lesson you left your purse in the front chair" As he handed me the purse with a HUGE GRIN!!
Rudy was exceptionally CLEAN! He loved to organize EVERYTHING! He had a love for his home like no other.. His yard was always perfectly manicured! He loved to have those trees trimmed just right! There wasn't anything he wouldn't attempt... Once, Nathan threw a pair of tweezers down the toilet Rudy literally removed the whole toilet!..
Then there was the Garage door it was unbalanced and not working Rudy, worked what
seemed hours in that Garage never complaining never giving up TILL IT WAS FIXED!
Rudy, was also a great man of Compassion he had a weak heart for the POOR!.. His heart would break when he would see a homeless person! He would be the first person to open his wallet!
Once, he saw a couple whom he knew (that had fallen between the cracks) at a local HEB they were full of MUD and had not eaten in days Rudy, wasted no time he put their bikes in his trunk and gave them a ride to McDonald's paid for their meal, and then gave them money! Then he brought them over to the shop so that we would continue helping them.
That was just the way Rudy was full of Love,Compassion and Integrity! A man of great love for his Family and God!
And although you may be gone Rudy, We will never forget you! You live forever in our hearts! And we continue to see little bits and pieces of you in your children!
Meagan has your fun spirit!~ Bailey has your Shyness,Compassion and Playfulness she is always playing pranks on her sister, AND loves to clean her drawers ~Nathan is ALL YOU ALL OVER AGAIN! He is determined to fix his broken toys all the time, and he is a GREAT HELPER!
We love and Miss you and look forward to one day seeing you! Rest in Peace!
