Ruben: Funeral Day

This is Rubens Funeral Day - Monday, May 26 - 2008

Ruben as teenager

The Death Announcement

It will be a hard day.
Thanks for all kind words and warm thoughts from blogger-friends all over the world.

When I feel strong enough I will tell you more about Ruben. An extraodinary person - far away from the Main Stream.

I just read Renny's post, the church was beautifully full with flowers and warm-hearted people saying farewell to your dear son. There is a passage from The Little Prince which I can't recall word by word now, but the fox says something like: don't be sad because I am gone, be happy remembering the happy times we had together...
(hugs)

Tor...your courage to share your pain is overwhelming...

Tears are flowing right now,I cant help it coz I know the pain of losing your love ones.I once lost my father when I was a child,but the memories remain fresh in my mind,that made me stronger.

Ruben is so lucky to have a father like you,during his respectable burial ceremony,I sense that he is happy wherever he is.

Take care of yourself,too,Tor.You still have Anna,your daughter Ingelin,your cats,relatives and friends with you.

Condolence,Tor...to you and yours....

a big hug from me,
Ghee

Hello Tor,

My name is Max and I am coming through Renny.
I would like to present my condolences to you and your wife; this is for sure a difficult moment for both...however I wish to tell you that my thoughts and prayers are with you!

From what I have read Ruben was a wonderful young man.

May God be with you in the dire hour!

Me da mucha tristeza la perdida de Ruben, es un momento muy triste para ti y tu familia. El estara siempre en tu corazon y vos en el suyo.
Muy linda la iglesia y me ha gustado ver mucha gente, eso significa que Ruben y tu son personas muy queridas.
Saludos para ti y toda la familia, mis condolencias.
