  10. Condolences 🙁 He was here not that many weeks ago. I can’t imagine how heartbreaking it is for the family.

    P.S. Tito Rudy, thank you for the shoes. I wear them nearly every day.

  11. Dearest Tita Az, Jeff, Jas, Jaime and the rest of the Dejelo family, I am heartbroken with the passing of Tito Rudy. He is a good man and we will all miss him. He is now without pain in the embrace of our Lord. I love you all and pray that you will be comforted in this time of sorrow. Big hugs to all.

  12. Dearest Tita Az, Tita Jamie, Tito Jase and Tito Jeff,

    Hearing about Tito Rudy’s passing was heartbreaking. Although I was still a kid the last time I saw him, I can still remember how kind he was and how he was always smiling. He was a ray of sunshine and will be deeply missed.
    I can only imagine what it must be like to lose someone like Tito Rudy but my thoughts are with you.

    Sending you all the love in the world,

  13. I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear
    mother, and found comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25
    verse 8 – “The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever,
    and wipe away the tears from all faces.” Also at Revelation 21
    verse 4 we find God’s promise to remove both pain and death.
    For more comfort, I turn to the website at:

  14. Cora,

  15. Dear Cora & family,
    I am so sad to hear about Rudy’s passing. I loved watching you two dance together at the ASHI meetings, and I remember Rudy singing Jingle Bells at one of Dr. Braun’s Christmas parties. You and Rudy were so generous in opening your home to our international parties at CCF. Sending you and your family a virtual hug, and love in your time of grief

  16. My deepest condolences to you and the family ..please know you all our forever in my prayers ..may the Lord shine upon you and bring you comfort in the days ahead .God Bless
