My prayers and condolences to the family of Ruben Kristianson. I have many fond memories growing up with the Kristiansons. Mr. Kristianson was always a joy to be around, caring father, and an inspiration to anyone who had the privilege to meet him.

Please accept my condolences on Reuben's passing. His faith and how he worked with others had such an influence. I especially remember his efforts in putting a new roof on the church.

Dear Kay and family,
We were saddened to hear of Reuben's passing and yet also rejoicing because he is now with the Lord in heaven and no more suffering or pain. I have so many great memories of him and I know that my mom and Scott do as well. I pray that God gives you peace and that He wraps you in his everlasting loving arms. God bless you all.
With love,
Evelyn Dooley,Scott Dooley & Lisa Solorio

An amaizing man with a dream to help many that needed a guided way. He provide more than just a job, he gave many confidence that they needed to live day to day.
Working for Reuben at Park Ridge has been one of my most rewarding jobs that I have ever come by.
I've never seen so many happy people to come to work as I did with the group and PR.
Thank you for this opportunity
