    My dearest and wonderful husband how I miss you and I am in shock that you are gone. I tried so hard to get you well but God decided he wanted you home. You loved and protected me for 53 yrs so glad you were in my life. You loved ours sons Rudy Jr, Ruben & Anthony in which we were so proud of them. No more suffering, doctors, medicines and pain.

    Rest in peace baby
    With all my love,
    Virginia Hernandez Cutaia

    Wow I am so missing you. This last week had been a nightmare and i just cant wake up. Wish you were still here. I was really praying for a miracle last week, and I was so sure you were going to walk out of the hospital as you always have. I been sad and crying every day, Sylas always says, “Dont cry Uncle Rudy, Grandpa is in your heart or Grandpa says you better eat” There is a void in my heart that I can not fill and never will. I love you and miss you dad.

    Love Always,

    Rudy Jr
