I am so very sorry for your loss. Rusty and I were high school friends. While in high school, he created my name out of metal. We recently had a fun and memorable conversation about his creation and shared about our families with each other. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren and told me how much he loved them. I pray you will find comfort through this extremely sad time. My heart is touched for you all.
Much love to you,
Ellen (Aarhus) Kephart
