About the Book
Rays of Light is a poetry compilation written in honor of Rudy Mena, who died at age 17. Most of this book’s poems are specifically dedicated to Rudy. Almost all of the rest of the poems honor other people who, like Rudy, have been rays of light that have brightened many lives.

Rudy’s tragic death occurred while he was on a day trip with his sister and their friends at the Jersey Shore: He drowned when a rip current dragged him out to sea. Rudy's Biology teacher, Anthony Menzel, published this compilation in order to help him and others work through their grief by remembering Rudy in a special way.

A kind, respectful, motivated young man, Rudy was truly a ray of light for his loved ones, his church family, and the school he attended. He was also a faithful member of Eastside High School’s Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) in Paterson, New Jersey. Regardless of how much time passes, his presence is still sorely missed by all who knew him.


Rayos de Luz es una compilación de poesía escrito en honor a Rudy Mena, quien falleció a los 17 años. La mayoría de los poemas en este libro se dedican específicamente a Rudy. Casi todo el resto de los poemas honran a otras personas, las cuales, como Rudy, han sido rayos de luz que han alumbrado muchas vidas.

La trágica muerte de Rudy ocurrió mientras él estaba en un día de paseo con su hermana y sus amigos en la playa de Nueva Jersey: Rudy se ahogó cuando fue arrastrado por una corriente de resaca. Su profesor de biología, Anthony Menzel, publicó esta compilación poética para ayudarles a él mismo y otros a enfrentar y así aliviar su dolor de luto por recordarle a Rudy de una manera especial.

Un joven bondadoso, respetuoso, y motivado, Rudy verdaderamente era un rayo de luz para sus seres queridos, su iglesia, y la escuela que asistía. También era un miembro fiel del JROTC, el grupo estudiantil de entrenamiento militar de Eastside High School en Paterson, Nueva Jersey. A pesar de la cantidad de tiempo que pasa, todos los que le conocían le siguen extrañando mucho.
