    May your soul be at rest

    • I always looked forward to seeing you come into rickers to give me a hard time. Or to bring me milk for my babies bc you loved your almond milk. I’m going to miss seeing you drive around town, & hearing you say “if someone doesn’t shoot me first” when id tell you to be careful. You’re going to be missed so so much Rusty.
      Love you friend💜 Rest In Heaven, peacefully.👼

  5. Rusty was a man of his word.
    Not many like him in this world today.
    He had a nice smile.
    I laugh at the time I got in the backyard with Rusty and his Dog Star. It was five minutes of chaos. If I heard it once I heard it 100 times. No Star No, get down Star get down, Get over here Star, Get over here….Star sometimes don’t like to listen.
    Always liked to tell Rusty something interesting.
    Only to hear Rusty say: I Knew That
    God‘s peace love and understanding be with you all, of course Rusty knew I’d say something like that.
