Dear Reuben, we will miss you here on earth,
Heaven is receiving a man of great worth,
Your love and kindness has blessed us all,
But God spoke and you answered the call.
Thanks for the “living water” prayers from your heart,
That helped our family along from the start,
So happy for you there’s no more pain,
Believe one day we will joyfully greet you again.

John 7:37,38 “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
John 7:46 “They answered, “No man ever spoke like this man”.
“The words of Jesus compel us to act, and to move, beyond business as usual. ”
Love you Diane, we grieve with you and all the family.
