My thoughts and prayers are with my niece Crystal and her family, my nephew Christian and his family, and to Rudy's sister and brothers. I do have so many good memories of Rudy and my sister Kathy together . Especially when I was a kid hanging out with both of them they were so much fun and always took my sister and I everywhere with them. Rudy always loved muscle cars and I remember as a kid him having a Nice Dodge Charger and we were racing a guy in another muscle car down Rio Grande in the valley, . I was holding on for dear life.. Best time!! Rudy rest in paradise with all who have departed and kiss my sis for me...Love you guys for ever and I will never forget you> Until we meet again .... God Bless the Lucero's...

My prayers and sincere condolences go out to my niece Crystal and her family and to my nephew Christian and his family, also to Rudy's sister Anita, brothers Patrick and Ronnie. I do have so many wonderful memories of Rudy and Kathy especially as a kid hanging out with them, they would take me and my sisters with them everywhere with them. Rudy loved muscle cars and I remember one time going for a ride with him in his nice Dodge Charger, we went for icecream and he came up to another muscle car on the road and decided to race down Rio Grande, and of course we smoked the other car!! Great memories.. I will never forget.. Until we meet again, give my sis a kiss for me.. Rest in paradise RUDY with those who have passed.
