  1. So sorry for your loss. He died at a young age and the family will miss him. His father died at age 49 and because of that I never really knew William. I’ve lived away most of my adult life. My thoughts and prayers are with Wilma and his siblings and children who will miss him. Out of the ten children that A. S. Rushing had only Ima Rushing Burson and myself or left. I was surprised at how much the above picture looked like my father, A. S. Rushing and his grandfather.
