    We are so sad about your loss. Looking back I wished I had spent more time in Albuquerque with that family. Yu will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Rudy was the BEST COOK! And he always had some kind of funny comment to make, even in his last days. He was the best host, working together with Lori to always make sure I was comfortable at their home and that I felt like I was part of the family. I’m going to miss him, but I’m also relieved he is no longer suffering. Rest In Peace, my father from another family!

    My prayers go out to the whole family during this difficult time. So hard to lose a family member even when we know they are now present with the Lord. (I go to Copper Pointe Church in Albuquerque and am in a Spanish language class with Robert and Linda.)

    Such a beautiful family all the Flores families. They are godly, friendly, helpful and wonderful people. Just reading about Rudy and the life he lived made me smile. May God bless Rudy as he enter the gates of heaven and may God bless his family with peace and comfort.

  • Sarina and Ellie Posted February 12, 2017 9:29 PM

    I love you Uncle Rudy! You will be missed by many! I will forever be grateful to you on the Faith life lesson that you taught my daughter through your struggles..that God does answer prayer, but it may not be in the way we expect. I thank you for that and am eternally grateful. God has given you piece and comfort and I know that we will see you again in heaven one day! With love! Xo

    I Love you Daddio,
    I’m comforted knowing that you are at peace now, and knowing I got to fully express my thoughts to you; how highly I think of you and how much you’ve actually taught me in a roundabout sort of way. Thank you for everything Dad.
    My forever copilot.
    You are so loved.

    Eternally your little one,
