DEBBIE GEER , August 17, 2020 My condolences goes to all the family of Maria Armijo. Sorry to hear that he is gone, he was a very hard working man. Sometimes Zita would tell us my husband is doing this project now and he always made sure that it was his way, it was so funny. Ruben has gone to heaven to be in a better place with God. Our prayer goes to you.
