A Letter From Heaven

To my dearest family,

some things I'd like to say.

But first of all, to let you know,

that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven.

Here I dwell with God above.

Here, there's no more tears of sadness;

here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy

just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I am with you

every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you

when my life on earth was through,

God picked me up and hugged me

and said, I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again,

you were missed while you were gone.

As for your dearest family,

they'll be here later on.

There's so much that we have to do,

to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things,

that he wished for me to do.

And foremost on the list,

was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night,

the day's chores put to flight.

God and I are closest to you...

in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth,

and all those loving years,

Because you are only human,

they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry:

it does relieve the pain.

Remember there would be no flowers,

unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you

all that God has planned.

If I was to tell you ,

you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain,

through my life on earth is over.

I'm closer to you now,

than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you

and many hills to climb;

But together we can do it

by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy

and I'd like it for you too;

that as you give unto the world,

the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody

who's in sorrow and in pain;

Then you can say to God at night....

"my day was not in vain."

And now I am contented....

that my life was worthwhile.

Knowing as I passed along the way

I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody

who is sad and feeling low;

Just lend a hand to pick him up,

as on your way you go.

When you're walking down the street

and you've got me on your mind;

I'm walking in your footsteps

only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go....

from that body to be free.

Remember you're not going...

you're coming here to me.

Ruben had just turned 18, He may be gone but we will remember him forever. I personally have made it my mission that I will never let my brothers murder go silent. I will keep looking and praying until these cowards are behind bars. 


In Loving Memory of Our Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Friend

This memorial website was created by Ruben's mom, & sisters for our loved one, Ruben Alvarado Jr. who was born in Safford Arizona on December 12, 1985. Ruben was murdered by 2 males in front (who are still at large) of his house on April 25, 2004 in Phoenix Arizona. 


Just Priceless! Thank you Donna please visit her loved ones at:

Ruben's  Interest and Hobbies 

He really loved messing with cars, stereos, motors really anything that had to do with cars, especially loved cars with a lot of bass , he enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together, I also enjoyed hanging out with his friends and family to of whom he was known of telling them about my famous FISH story.

One more thing you might also ask why I have mostly BLUE on Ruben's Page that is because BLUE was Ruben's favorite color.


We Welcome you to also visit Ruben's Memorial Pages:

My Ruben

Even though I cannot see you I know you are up there watching over me swear sometimes I hear your voice His leaving us was not his choice but I miss our talks that we once had He was always there for me through good times and bad He could make me laugh when no one else could Even when I didn't think it was possible he always would I wish he would have known how much he meant to me I wish he would have, I wish he could have seen.

He will forever be my guiding wings And help me get through all the hard things I know he's in heaven having lots of fun wearing his halo that shines golden like the sun But still every time I look up to the sky I bow my head and I cry and cry But I know he's looking, wanting me to be tough but for me these times are just too rough He will always be my lifelong best friend & little bro it was a shame his life had to come to an end in the hands of a mindless criminal. 

In Loving Memory of my little Brother Ruben Jr.

Till We Meet Again

The time has come for me to go
I have a few things I'd like you to know
Don't grieve for me nor shed a tear
Remember the good times shared when I was here
My mission here must have been complete
So I followed the path and took my seat
The one that was made especially for me
My body is useless and my soul set free
For I'm in a better place
Can you imagine the smile upon my face
Finally at peace, no worries at all
I, too, will hear you when you call
You say dear Lord I miss him touch
I never realized I loved him so much
And even though you'll miss me my sisters and mother

This is not goodbye It's just till we meet again


To My Brother's Murderer

I think back to that dreaded night
of April 25,2004 and I wonder how could
you make such a deadly mistake. Do you know what you stole from our family? A child that had not reached his full potential.
You stole a child that was loved by all.
You broke the hearts of all who knew him.
You took an innocent child and stole him from
his parents, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and friends.
You took an innocent child Away from his mom. You took a father’s son. You took a sister’s brother. You took a friend’s friend.
Do you live with this everyday? Do you even know the pain you have created to us? When you lay awake at night do you think about
what you took from us? As you lay awake do you think about the Tragic Death you caused
of Our Beloved Son and Brother?

!!!Well We Hope You Do Forever!!!

We Miss and Love You So Very Much!
Ruben A. Alvarado
Our Son, Brother, & Uncle.
