To the entire Ruesga, and Villagrana family,
My soul aches for you guys in this time of loss. A young life tragically cut short, events like these are so very hard to process. I know that your family has a strong faith. Do no not be saddened by Fernandos departure from this world, but rest assured that God needed him by his side. His light will always surround you and his love will always be right there.
Where do I start, as a young man you was so respectful in my home with my daughters and wife. You always talked with me about your goals and cars and future plans with your Dad.... As your football coach we also had some pretty cool memories. You motivated and hyped the whole team when they were down. You always showed up ready to play and left it all on the field. You're talent was amazing to watch. The time you and Luke spent hanging out before and after football and school and weekends and summers left such an impression on me and my family. Melinda, I am so sorry for you and your husbands loss! I couldnt imagine losing a child especially like this.... We send our deepest condolences to you and all of you kids. I see what luke has become for his sisters, and again; I couldnt imagine the loss. Praying for you all furing this trying time. May the lord provide comfort and peace diring these trials your family is enduring. ... " this too shall pass " God Bless you all.- Fernando - Rest Easy and peacefully.
( Misty and Rick )

My heart goes out to you and the rest of the family that you have had to lose such a special person In such a tragic situation.It is hard to lose any family member but even harder when it is a child. I send you lots of love and prayers and I know that in the days to come your you will find comfort in your other children and grandchildren around you other family members friends. Nothing will ever fill that space of loss that you have for Fernando but think of all the happy moments and keep him alive in your hearts and thoughts talk of him often. That is what will ease your pain and keep him alive forever. I will love you always
