Dear Liz - what to say...your Dad and Mom were among my favorite people during my Chatham years and, as you know, he loved you more than anyone on this planet!His life was not always easy but he made it one well lived.

Rich and I were saddened by the news of your dad's passing. In reading the many stories on line he sounds like the character you described. And I might add the apple does not fall far from the tree! A gift from him to you. May your many wonderful memories esp those army buddy reunions give you strength as you grieve your loss.

Austin was one of those people that I feel very fortunate and gratefull to have had him as a friend.
I will always remember the time Austin, Kim, and I we were going out for dinner. Before we left he stuck his credit card in my pocket and told me (with a smile) - I may be old, but if you use anything but that to pay for dinner I will kick your butt. No argument from me.
Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.

To my dear friend Liz,
I know you and your Dad had such a special relationship, he will be missed...
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to meet him on a couple of occasions. I will never forget our last visit to the Cape when we went to take your Dad for a ride so he could be our tour guide. It was so much fun hearing all the history, all the time barking out orders (lovingly) to the driver (you)... "Slow down", "Back up", "Turn around".... The Rouse sisters will remember that trip forever.
We are always here for you -
Love, Mark & Julie
