  2. I consider myself fortunate to have had Rusty as a friend in high school. He and I often gathered with other close friends to to create wonderful times together. Rusty and I would play tennis against each other and I don’t believe I ever won a match. My prayers are for Nelda and his family and friends to remember Rusty as a funny teenager with many friends and as a good man.

  3. I have not seen Rusty since I was in college. Interestingly, he crossed my mind a couple of weeks or so ago. I guess I know why now. We enjoyed a lot of good times in our youth. He and his family are in my prayers.

  4. Nelda,I am so sorry for your loss. You two were dear friends to me back in the 80’s and I appreciate everything you did for me. Rusty was a great guy.

  5. Nelda and Extended Family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss Rusty, but I am so thankful you had each other.

    I have good memories of Rusty. He was a good friend and we had some fun memories together. I was SO DELIGHTED to get an online chat with him a while back. He had been in the hospital a while and was so looking forward to getting out of there and back to life. I am so sorry that I did not watch more closely for how he was doing and get to visit him.

    Rusty was a great friend to many and I am thankful he was a great friend to me. I am so saddened at his passing. I hope to see Rusty again, because of what Jesus has done for us!

    God bless you and comfort you.
