Hi Ruben,

 This email has been a long one in the making!  It has taken me the greater part of the day to think of what I wanted to say.  I decided to keep it simple… Thank you!  I know you, you will say, “for what?”  Well, it has been 5 years since I met you and you have been such an amazing friend to our family.  I know that there are times when we both (especially DJ) frustrate you or that it may seem like we don’t support each other (you and I) but at the end of the day, you are truly one of my dearest friends and I would walk through fire for you!

Thank you for supporting DJ through our tough times at CVHS.  Thank you for always being my rock and supporting me when I want to kill someone for not treating my kid fair.  Thank you for always being honest with me even when the truth hurts.  Thank you for guiding us to Capo Valley Christian…  This decision was one of the most difficult ones we made as a family and all I wanted was to call you and have you make the decision.  In the end, I know DJ needed to decide and we needed to see if we could pull it off.  Thank you for supporting DJ through that!  You don’t know how many time Chache said he talked to you and you supported DJ…  That helped me so much.  Thank you for allowing DJ to work with you at OCX and help with his tuition.  He needed to get a job and now he can work doing what he LOVES.  You will see that he is a mini Ruben!  That was something that totally touched my heart last year when DJ helped with the CATS.

I have cried, stressed, thrown up, and cursed during this process.  I used so many of our past conversations to get to where we ended up today, and you will FOREVER have a lasting voice in my head.  I’m not done with you though…  DJ has a long way to go with his education and career in baseball.  You have been, and I pray, will continue to be with me every step of the way! 


From the bottom of my heart Ruben, Thank you!
