I'm sure everyone who has come in contact with what Reuben does weather it be his MUGEN characters or his music (both remixed and original), feels a loss as if they had known him personally. I think it's because he puts so much effort and heart into the things he does. Until I heard of his death I never made the connection that the Reuben here was the same Reuben that created the Mugen characters but it makes sense. They are both outstanding and inspirational. Enough so, to make him a distinguished member in both communities. I am sure the same can be said about his other hobbies like dragonboating and activities he may have done in school and with his friends. I can only imagine the loss that is felt by the people who knew him personally.
