To the Ethridge Family. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Rudy while in Knoxville Tn at Oak Ridge National Lab. Of course his reputation followed him after coming from Jefferson Lab in Newport News as one to get the job done. He did indeed do that. I will miss Rudy and certainly did enjoy working with him. Roy I know you will miss your Dad and I will be thinking of you and your family at this difficult time. As one veteran to another I salute your Dad. An american hero. May your pain be eased at this time, by reflecting back on your treasured memories of your Dad and I know he enjoyed being around you and working with you at Oak Ridge. I'm sure that was special to him as well as having you by his side.
