Oh, Rusty. I'm so sorry for your loss. That dear man. I remember your Dad so well (your Mom, too, of course) when we were kids growing up in Marble. They were always so kind to me. No matter at what age, it's still hard to lose them. I'm sorry I can't be there to pay my respects in person, as you were for me in early December for my Mom, but we send love and many good wishes to you for the comforting presence of family and friends in your sorrow. Much love.

Rusty, Wanda and families, I was so sad to hear of your Dads passing. I have many happy memories in your home, mostly from baby-sitting you “kids”. I enjoyed visiting with them as they both always welcomed me into your home. I can see your beautiful Mom and handsome Dad up in Heaven enjoying square dancing in their beautiful matching western outfits. To me, he was a legend in Marble, one of the kindest, sweetest, caring men that I knew from a little kid who lived up the street to my adult years. I’m so fortunate to have known him. You are all in my thoughts and Prayers.

Deepest sympathy to Wanda and Rusty and Family. Cherish all those Great Memories. Your father was a Gem! I remember when he and his brothers came weekly to visit their Uncle John. My Grandpa so appreciated their company! Hugs and prayers.
