To all of the Rubalcaba family our most sincere thoughts and prayers on Dan`s passing. I always loved running into Dan and although those times became fewer as our children grew it was always warm and welcoming catching up. Truly one of the nicest persons I have ever met and a beaming Dad when we caught up. Hope the memories will bring a smile to your faces.....
