My deepest sympathy to Russell's loving parents and siblings. My heart breaks for you and for his children. My prayers for your continued strength.
Dear Rusty's family,
I knew Rusty at Indiana University. I believe he lived in the same dorm as me-- Mc Nutt. Even if he didn't live there, he had friends there. I met him at Mc Nutt and a few times at fraternity parties (I believe it was ZBT). He was friends with Andy Simms, the brother of my friend Lori Simms. Although we only met a few times, I just want you to know that he was such a gentleman. So many girls were friends with him because he was so respectful. I remember thinking, "What a nice guy." So, after a long work week, I was just watching TV tonight and 20/20 came on. I recognized him instantly. My heart is just breaking right now and I am sick to my stomach as to what happened to him and to your family. God bless all of you. You are in my prayers, Jaime Katz
Sophia was a camper of mine this past summer at the JCC. She was such a special little girl and I had no idea at the time that any of this had gone on in her life. Seeing as though she was so incredible at such a young age can only show a small portion of how incredible her father must have been. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray only the best for Sophia, her younger brother and the rest of your family. Stay strong and may
g-d bless you with refuah shlema, health and well being
My prayers go out to the Sneiderman family. I am very sorry for this tragedy that occurred on November 23, 2010.
Marilyn, Don, and Family,
I am, of course, picturing Rusty at nine with a huge smile, bounding into the classroom with something interesting to share. His recent pictures show the same smile and warmth and the descriptions indicate that he matured into a wonderful husband and father of whom I'm sure you are very proud.
Please accept my most sincere sympathies which can in no way really express the depth of the sadness I feel for your loss.
We are so very sorry for your loss and will keep you in our prayers.
We continue to have all of you in your family in our hearts and soul, and we remain in shock about what happened to Rusty. We saw the story on CNN Headline News last weekend and it brought tears to my eyes because this was such a senseless act. we know that family and friends are giving you the support needed at this time as well in the future. Andrea, we wish you the best that life has to offer in the future after such a tragedy in your life. Please remember that the darkness will turn into lightness for you eventually, and that there is still life to live for you and your two darling young children that hopefully will be fulfilling. I know you are a strong gal.
May G-d be with you always and watch over you, Rusty, your children, and the rest of your family and bring you a healthy, loving and productive life in the future. Please give your parents and Todd and his family a special hello and a message of sympathy from us with the hope that we can be together again sooner than later in the future. We continue to miss the fun and so many events that we shared together for so many years.
With all our love and continued sympathy and sadness for your loss.
Linda, Michael, Sarah, Josh, Courtnay, London, Teri, Ben, and Sammy Joseph Cohen.
I am from the Northeast and didn't know Rusty, but my heart goes out to him, his family and friends. I can't imagine the hate that one person can possess in order to carry out this senseless act. May the Lord bless his soul and watch over his family.
Our most Loving Creator now holds your loved one, taking away his pain as he wraps him up in your love and His Love. May you feel this Love, warm and healing flowing from our most Loving Creator to each of you as He surrounds you and your family with it's power, holding you ever so close while He comforts each of you. May His Power protect you and His Presence watch over you while His Healing Light fills your hearts and illuminates your darkest hours. Prayers, heart felt, are with each of you and with friends that share your loss, for our most Loving Creator to lift you up and carry you on His Shoulders through this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your incredible loss. I knew Rusty at IU, he was smart & funny and always a joy to be around. He will be missed.
Condolences to the family. My heart goes out to you.
Joel and I send our deepest sympathies to you and your family during this heartbreaking time. We were shocked to hear the sad news about Rusty and we cannot imagine how difficult this is for you. We send our prayers your way and hope that you may find peace and comfort through the love of your family and friends. Rusty was a wonderful man and I was honored to call him my friend.
I'm very sorry to hear about Rusty's passing. I will always remember his great smile, crafty basketball skills and the hospitality that he, you and Sophia extended when we visited your lovely home. Wayne Taitt
Our deepest sympathies to you and your family - sincerely, Glenna Vittel and Jean Blaha
I am stunned to hear about Rusty. We went to IU undergrad together and went through A-Core together. I also hung out with you guys a few times when you we all lived in Boston. I am so very sorry for your loss and hope that you and your family can find strength now and peace in the future.
Susan (Edelman) Booton
I completed the BBA Leadership Program with Rusty -- we were both just starting our families during that time. Rusty often talked about you and how he couldn't wait to become a dad. I'm heartbroken over this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your children and your whole family. Rusty will be missed.
My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. May you find strenght from family and friends as time continues onward.
Andrea. Our hearts go out to you in this horrific time! Please know that we are keeping you and your children in our prayers. May God give you strength and help you and your family attempt to heal. Chris & Dave Adams, Bellhaven Chase Ct.,Vinings Estates
I am a teacher at Dunwoody Prep and I remember Rusty from the times he would drop Sophia off at school. And I remembered the devotion that Andrea showed as a volunteer in Sophia's class and carrying around baby Ian. I was deeply affected by the loss of Rusty as this unthinkable crime happened. Please know that your family is in my family's thoughts and prayers. We were all shaken by this. I am truly sorry for your family's loss. I am confident that Rusty's legacy will continue to live on in all of us.
Grief can be so hard during the holidays, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one this holiday season.
Don as you know I have never been one to be at a loss for words, until now. Please know that Alice and I are thinking of you, Marilyn and the rest of your family.
Alice Randolph and Sherry Roberts
Marilyn, Don and Steve, we were shock to hear the news about Rusty. I cannot imagine what you are going through. We will always remember the good times we had together with your family at chautauqua, and on other occations also. May god be with you all. The Glickmans
After reading these comments, it appears Rusty became as exceptional an adult, husband, and father as he was a fellow student and classmate in Beachwood. He was one that you would hope would never change, and now I see that hope was realized. It saddens me to hear of this tragedy, but I also feel blessed to have known him. My prayers go out to all of Rusty's family during this difficult time.
Mr. & Mrs. Sniederman; I heard about Rusty last Thursday and I dont know what to say. Rusty was always very kind, well respected and very smart. My family and I wish to send our condolences.
Steve, I cannot begin to tell you how saddened I am for you and your family. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all during the difficult times that lie ahead.
To the Sneiderman family -- we will always remember our visits to Chautauqua with our cousins, the Glickmans, and campfires with their "neighbors" Sneidermans.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
It's been many years since our days at Walden and IU. I'm so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family.
My heart goes out to you and his family. You are all in my prayes and thought.
Dear Andrea and the Sneiderman Family,
Words cannot say how sorry we are for your loss. We will always remember Rusty's smiling face and his good nature. We are thinking of you and your family and hope that you will find strength in his memory and the ones you love.
The Byrde Family
I am so saddened by this story. Andrea, it is apparent that millions of people all over the country have been affected by this senseless tragedy. You, your beautiful children, and all of Rusty's family will be in my prayers.
I'm a friend of a friend and just heard this horrible news. Reading the ajc article brought tears to my eyes. I can think of nothing worse... I'm so sorry for his wife and family, and particularly his young kids. What a senseless shame. Thoughts and prayers with you all.
Although I have never met either of you, and I live in NY, my heart goes out to your family, especially the children who will never know their dad. Such complete disregard for life. My thoughts & prayers are with all of you.
I am terribly sorry for your loss. I can only hope and pray that they find whomever is responsible for this senseless tragedy.
My husband and I dod not know your family but were devastated hearing of his death. May you and your family be comforted among the other mourners of Zion.
Andrea, we are so very, very sorry for your loss. You and the kids are in our prayers.
What do you say to a family who has just lost a loved one, especially when you don't know them. My prayers are with you every moment in this investigation. I hope that peace finds you in these coming days. And that the children are ok. My deepest thoughts, prayers and sympathy are with you.
I saw the piece on the Today show . . . and although I don't know you, as a fellow Jew my heart goes out to you and your family in this horrible time of grief. Please know that you are not alone.
Dear Andrea and Sneiderman Family,
We are truly saddened by the sudden and tragic manner of Rusty's departure, and we mourn his passing. I knew him from the Harvard Business School Club of Atlanta. He founded the Entrepreneurship SIG which I chaired for a couple of years. Rusty was always a welcome face and smile and perfect gentleman. We will certainly miss him.
We pray for you and family as you try to press through this un-imaginable calamity. Our prayers are with you, as we have had to live through a point-blank shooting of our oun son in the doorway of his own home by total stangers. He did survive just by the grace of God.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, His face to shine upon you and to give you peace.
LeRoy Sampson and Family
I knew you and Rusty in college, although not very well. I am so, so sorry for your terrible loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Michelle (Luchinsky) Markowitz
Our thoughts and prayers are offered to all of Mr. Sneiderman's family and friends during this very sad and difficult time. It is obvious he left a legacy of caring, giving and love.
I know you do not know me, but I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I was reading the story this morning at work and found myself crying at my desk and praying that you all will have some comfort in the days to come.
Although I do not know you or your family. It is times like this in America that bonds us together. My life was shattered in a untimely demise as well. I lost my husband. Time is the true healer as this is just the beginning. I pray for you and your family!
Dear Andrea, Marilyn, Don, Steve and Lisa:No words are eloquent enough to describe all of Rusty's qualities nor can there possibly be any adequate enough to measure the depth of your grief and sorrow. I'm devastated by your loss. He contributed so much in such a short time and most of all I mourn the loss that Ian and Sophia will never get to know the wonderful father they had. Together with all this unfathomable fate that has struck your family since Thursday, you are dealing with the question of why. Andrea, I saw your appeal on Facebook and I have put the sketch on my page and will keep it there continuously, hopefully until justice is served. Meanwhile, I hope the strong bonds of family and the messages you've received from countless numbers of friends whose lives Rusty touched in some kind, caring way will help to give you strength to get through the very difficult days ahead. I'd like to leave you with this thought from one of Rusty's columns written in The Beachcomber in February 1992. He was writing about the secrets of success and what the word means to different people. He concluded by saying that success "comes from inside each of us. Success is being content with who you are, happy with what you are doing and who you are with. We can all be successful; we just have to try to make ourselves and others happy."
Rusty lived too short a life, but I think we can all conclude he was extraordinarily successful.
Dear Marilyn, Don and Family, I can remember the times when we were teaching in Beachwood that we would discuss the accomplishments of our children. Rusty always stood out as a wonderful young man and you were so proud of his accomplishments. We were devastated to learn the news of his tragic death this past weekend. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy and condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Nancy & Alvin Kitay, Orange Village, Ohio
My thoughts and prayers are with you
To Andrea, your children, and the rest of the family - I am so sorry for this unthinkable tragedy that you guys have gone through. I will absolutely be praying for your strength and comfort during this time.
May your family find the strenght to support this tragedy.
When I think of Rusty, I think of all the fun times we had when we were younger. The boat, playing in the snow and fun family dinners. The loss of my cousin greatly saddens me and is very shocking. Thoughts, prayers, and love to your family. You will be missed greatly.
I am so sorry to hear this news. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Andrea, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, always.
Andrea and the Greenberg and Sneiderman families- My heart is absolutely broken for you. Andrea is my oldest friend, dear to my heart, and her family such an important part of my youth. When I met Rusty, my heart was full--he made Andrea so happy and was an absolute wonderful man. I am so very sorry for your tragic loss of a fantastic husband, father, friend, son. He is greatly missed, and you have the support of so many of us who love you and him. I wish you strength in these terribly difficult days ahead. Much love to you.
Grief can be so hard during the holidays, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one this holiday season.
I knew Rusty From IU. He was a great guy. You are all in the thoughts and prayers of my family.
I am so sorry to hear the news. Rusty was such a tremendous individual. He was one of the nicest and smartest people I ever worked with.
I will miss Rusty. I will pray for you and your children.
Jeff Plewa, Chicago
I was deeply saddened to hear of Rusty's passing. I wish you and your family strength. I will always remember what a wonderful couple you two made & enjoyed spending time with you at Indiana.
I met Rusty during the Look Up to Cleveland program that we attended in high school. We all hailed from different backgrounds but Rusty's personality transcended race, class, gender, faith. I remember him for the warm, welcoming smile he had for everyone, as well as his easy laugh. He was a quiet leader, encouraging us all to be our best. May your family be strengthened by your wonderful memories together and may your hearts find peace.
We met Rusty the first day of his college years at Indiana. He was smart and one of the nicest young men we met and who became a friend of our son, who lived across the hall during their Freshman year. Their friendship continued throughout the years since. Rusty's death was a senseless,violent act by an individual.
Our sincere and deepest sympathy to his parents, brother and most especially to his wife and children.
Marilyn, Don, & Steve,
Words can not convey our feelings. We wish we were there with you to soothe your souls over such a tragic loss. Rusty's spirit will continue to light the life of all who knew him.
Andrea & family - Rusty was such a warm-hearted person with so much to give in life. His tragic and shocking loss will always be outshined by the multitude of wonderful memories that so many have of him. We cannot even begin to imagine how you're feeling and only pray that you may find peace and strength through the love & support of so many family & friends who are thinking of you and your children.
Meka & Ajay
Andrea and Family,
I will always remeber Rusty's smile and that he was so helpful to me as I came to Indiana a year behind him--this made a real difference for me. So smart and focused. So sorry for your loss, whenever I think back fondly on time at Indiana or Samson AZA will think of you all and pray that you're finding strength and peace.
Marilyn and Don, Jeff and I are deeply sorry for the lost of your son Rusty. Please accept our sincere sympathies.
Rusty was a great friend throughout my Beachwood years. My deepest sympathies to his family.
Our deepest sympathy to you & your family. Rusty was such a great guy & someone we are really glad we got a chance to know, You & your family will be in our thoughts & prayers.
Marc, Debra, Jack & Emily Heitzman
To the Sneiderman family, our deepest sympathy during this unsettling time as we all try and understand this horrible event. I had crossed paths with Rusty in Erie PA through the Singers. I am living in Atlanta now as well and heard the horrible news. We wish you strength during the difficult time.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of your son, husband, & brother. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the entire Sneiderman family.
Dear Sneiderman Family -
My heart breaks for your loss. We were classmates at HBS and will always remember Rusty as an amazing individual who always had a smile on his face and positive words of encouragement. We had great discussions about education and the world we wanted to raise our kids in.
I will miss him.
Your family are in my thoughts a prayers.
I will always have fond memories of Rusty as a kind and loving friend. I wish condolences to the entire family.
Days are coloured bubbles
that float upon the surface of fathomless night.~ R.T.
Rusty was a coloured bubble,unique and multidemensional ...floating into all of our lives with a kind,gentle,and brilliant spirit... taken into the night far too soon.
Words seem empty. Peace and Love
May his memory be a blessing
My deepest sympathy goes out to the Sneiderman's family for their sudden loss. As Andrea and Rusty's young son (Ian's) teacher, I (Ms. Kem) had the chance to grow an attachment with a very special family. Rusty would make sure he told a secret to Ian every morning before he left the building; "Daddy loves you and have a great day!" He expressed so much love for his children. He came in with a smile every morning, asked about our weekend, and would share some stories with us (the teachers) about the fun events that they would be doing or had done. He will be missed very much. Andrea and family are in my prayers. May God bless you and give you the strength during this difficult time.
To the Sneiderman family
I was a classmate of Rusty's at HBS. This is a huge shock and incomprehensible. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. Rusty was one of the most amazing and caring people I have ever known! My thoughts and prayers are with you and his family.
My sincere condolences to the Sneiderman family. Rusty and I were section mates at HBS. He was a true gentlemen. He was very happy, always smiling and extremely genuine. He will never be forgotten. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Rusty was a good friend. Our deepest condolences and sympathy to his entire family.
Rusty was a good friend. We wish his entire family our deepest condolences and sympathy.
Marilyn, Don, and Family,
We are so very sorry for the tragic loss of your beloved Rusty. The pride you had for each other speaks volumes of your family's love. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Rusty's wife and children and Steven. We are so very sorry.
Renee and Steve Hochman,Highland Hts, Ohio
As a fellow DP (and Vanderlyn) parent, words cannot express my families sadness at for your tragic loss. Your family are in our prayers. Hamakom yenachem etchem b’toch sh’ar avaylay tsiyon viyerushalayim. May the Almighty comfort you together with all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem”
Dear Sneiderman Family,
Our world is dimmer without Rusty. Wishing comfort and peace for you and our community of friends.
It has been many years since Rusty moved away from Cleveland, but we always considered him a good friend. Rusty was the best of men, and he will be sorely missed. Our hearts go out to you and your family.
Marilyn and Don,
Our thoughts are with and you family. May the knowledge that you are in our prayers and thoughts help you find faith and strength.
Sandy and Bob Berkowitz
Andrea, Marilyn, Don, and Steve-
Words can not describe the sympathy I'm feeling for you. Marilyn & Don- you used to go out with my parents- Jeff & Sandy Stein years ago. I knew Rusty for a time in early high school but have always been in the same circle of friends with him. Rusty was one of the kindest, gentlest people I've ever known... and reading about all the wonderful things he's done in the past few years, it's no surprise how happy he must have been. I wish you all strength during this very difficult time. Thinking of you...
Emily (Stein) Cohen
To Andrea and the Sneiderman family. Rusty and I were section-mates at Harvard Business School. I still clearly see his bright smile and hear his calming voice. He was a wonderful man and I will always remember him. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Words cannot express the sadness I am feeling. Memories of our years together at Chautauqua Lake keep flooding my brain. My heart goes out to the entire Sneiderman family during this time of tragic loss.
Our hearts go out to you . We are so glad to have seen teo weeks ago. Gary and Darlene Bassin Pittsburgh, Pa.
I went to high school with Rusty briefly and remember working with him on the newspaper...he was everything everyone has said about it and I still remember him all these years later. To the Schneiderman family, my sincere condolences to you all. May the love and support of your loved ones get you through this difficult time.
There is nothing I can say about Rusty that you don't already know, but what I can tell you is there are hundreds of people in Cleveland who are sending you all of our love and support.
Rusty and his family are in my thoughts at this difficult time.
Dear Andrea and Family,
Ben sent us a link from a friend whose wife went to school with Russell at Indiana and we want to express our sincere feelings of deep sympathy to you and your entire family. Needless to say, we are so very sorry about what has just happened to Russell and the effects of his passing especially on you and your children. We are confident that you will have tremendous support and love from family and friends to get you through this awful period and loss. We wish we could be there at the funeral but at least we can let you know that you are in our hearts and that we wish you the best that life can offer in the future. My parents and myself endured family members passing away prematurally most of which I never even knew....so may the good times and memories you all have of Russell be with you in your heart and soulforever and ever. Please extend our deepest condolences also to Todd and his family and to your mom and dad. We have missed all of you these past years. And as my father so often said, "YOU HAVE TO LIGHT YOUR OWN LANTERN IN THE DARKNESS TO SEE THE LIGHT OF LIFE AGAIN!"
With all our love and best wishes to you in the future.
Linda and Michael; Sarah and Chris (not married yet); Josh, Courtnay and London Jade Cohen (age 2 1/2); Ben, Teri and Sammy Joseph Cohen (age 1 1/2)
As a teacher of Rusty's daughter I got the opportunity to see firsthand what an amazing father he was. My heart aches with sadness for the Sneiderman family.
Rusty was simply a good person...a mench in every sense of the word. I will always remember him wearing his signature smile. My deepest condolences, you are in my thoughts and heart.
Lisa, Steve and family I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.
I am beyond words. Prayers are with the family.
Andrea, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. Rusty was a generous and loving man who always made everyone around him feel at ease and lucky to know him.
Hi Andrea - It's Debi Winkler McCann from Section E at HBS. I am so sorry to hear this horrible news. When I picture Rusty I can only picture a smile on his face....just like you! My heart goes out to you, your children and everybody who will miss his smiling face.
Darkness cannot be welcomed,
Into a heart where he lives still.
For how else will the Joy, he brought,
Ward off the bitter chill?
But he cannot ever leave us,
If we never quite let go.
LOOK! There he is, inside our hearts.
Because we love him so.!!
God wrap your arms around this family and give them PEACE !!
I was shocked to hear of Rusty's tragic passing. I went to IU with Rusty and Andrea and spent a lot of time around the apartment he shared with Matt. I specifically remember how Rusty had such a close and happy relationship with his parents- he even showed me the IU rug his dad had made. He clearly thought his dad was an awesome guy, and he adored his mom as well. Not many college guys admit to loving their parents so openly and I always admired that about him.
Andrea, he was always crazy about you and I am totally sure he was an enthusiastic and incredibly loving father. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Rusty was a standup guy who I instantly liked and got to know well over two years at HBS. I am shocked and dismayed at the loss of such a good person - friend, colleague, son, father, husband, brother. My wife Debbie and I extend our sincere condolences to his immediate and extended family. God Bless. - Christopher and Debbie Williams (HBS2002)
My heartfelt condolences to The Sneiderman family at such a heart wrenching time. Just know that you have an abundance of love coming from the Beachwood Community and you are in all of our hearts and prayers at such a difficult time.
I don't have the words to express how deeply saddened I was to hear about Rusty. As I think back to our times at IU, I can't remember a time when he didn't have a smile on his face. Such a great guy. I'm thinking of you Andrea, and your beautiful babies, as well as the rest of your family.
To the Sneiderman Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I was worked with Rusty at Northwestern Mutual and he was a wonderful person. I still remember how excited he was when Sophia was born. He was always trying to show me so many pictures of her!! Now I can laugh because I do the same thing since I'm a mom. Rusty you will be missed. I will be praying for your family and may God take care of them.
My heart hurts for the family and my prayers are that God would give the Sneiderman Family His peace durning their time of sorrow.
Andrea, Larry and I were devastated to learn of Rusty's passing -- we're cousins of Marilyn's & had attended your lovely wedding -- We're in tears as we write this and send our love and prayers for you and your family. We remember Rusty from childhood and can't believe he's gone...may G-d grant you all strength to get through this... love and prayers, Larry and Betty Levick and our children, Jim and Sandy VanSuch and daughters.
I am speechless. I remember Rusty well from our IU Hillel days. He was a great great guy. My heart goes out to Andrea and to all of his family. May G-d comfort you at this difficult time.
I want to express my condolences to the Sneiderman family. I am a fellow DP parent, and although I do not know your family personally I am truly saddened for your loss. Looking at all the kind words Rusty received, he must have been a great man. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
The Daisy Family
I pray a Higher Power turns this stunning tragedy into a super nova blessing. I especially pray for "the peace that passes all understanding", both now and in the future, for the spouse and children of the victim. May all affected (family, preschool staff and children, rescuers, community members, etc.) be wrapped in love, faith, and healing.
My heart goes out to you, your family and friends, Andrea. Rusty was such a wonderful person with that sparkle in his eye and compassion unmatched by most. I wish I had the words to comfort you. Just know he will be remembered as a great person and I have such fond memories from years ago at IU as well as when I first moved to Atlanta and reunited with all of you. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences. May his memory be a blessing.
My heart goes out to your family! I will
offer my Mass for Mr. Sneiderman Sunday.
God bless your family.
I would see Rusty very frequently at Dunwoody Prep and he always said hello and had a smile on his face. He was such a loving and caring father and his children loved him very much. He will be missed very much and I am praying for Andrea, Sophia and Ian. I am very sorry for you loss.
My deepest condolences to the Sneiderman family and all who are mourning this tragic loss.
Andrea, I am so sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and your family. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
May God bless you and comfort you during your time of grief. I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for you and your children.
Rusty was a great classmate at HBS. He will be missed. He and his family will be in our prayers. May the culprits realize that money is imaginary but life is real.
my thoughts and prayers to family and friends although i didnt know him personally, he sounds like an awsome guy...
I did not know Rusty or the Sneiderman family, but it felt very close to home as our kids are at the MJCCA preschool just around the corner. We would like to express our condolences and deepest sympathy for the family. Sincerely, The Silberman Family
We were shocked and saddened to learn of Rusty's death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and children and of course his parents.
I spoke with Rusty briefly very recently in the halls of Dunwoody Prep where we talked about the progress of his son in Playball. I clearly remember thinking what a very nice man he was, and obviously very involved in his children's life. This tragic news is beyond comprehension, and I pray for strength and courage for Andrea, their children and everyone who is grieving to accept this terrible loss. May your memories of him give you strength.
It has been a while, but I have many fun memories of you and Rusty at IU Hillel.
Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I cannot find the words to express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. May Rusty's memory be a blessing.
As a teacher at Dunwoody Prep, it deeply saddens me to see a family suffer through such a tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the Sneiderman family through this difficult time. Surround yourself with people who love you!
I am in complete and utter shock and I'm typing this with tears streaming down my face. Although I hadn't spoken to either of you in awhile, Rusty and I e-mailed on and off...and more to the point, some of my fondest memories of Chicago involved hanging out with both of you...you two even made your move-in fun when I did my best to help out. Please- let me know if there is *anything* I can do. Anything. My sister lives in Atlanta and already said she'd do what she can as well.
Mr. Sniederman was more than a valued customer, but a neighbor, and we at Texaco Xpress Lube in Dunwoody are deeply saddened by the loss. His wife and children are in our prayers. God be with you.
Andrea - I want you to know how much I love you and am praying for your strength. I am thinking of your entire family during this very difficult time.
May God bless you and keep you in your time of need. I am sorry for loss, you and your family are in my prayers. God Bless you!
What a terrible tragedy. Words cannot convey the loss we are all feeling. Rusty will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of calling you their friend. I have such fond memories four friendship since high school youth group, IU. And, those great college & post-college silly Wed pre-Thansgiving afternoons when we'd gather at your house to inhale a few of your mom's yummy Thanksgiving pies. My deepest condolences to Andrea, your kids and your family.
Andrea, I'm very sorry for your loss and offer you my condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Andrea, My thoughts, prayers and love are with you and your family. Rusty was a very special person. I will always remember his smile and kindness. Please know that I am here for you as are your friends from the Hillel family. May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
Much love, Rabbi Sue
Rusty we were just sitting across the conference room table two days ago - I am startled and saddened. Can't stop thinking about our long phone conversation about business and FAMILY late into Wednesday evening. In the three months I knew you I was developing my first man crush. God gets to learn, first-hand, how great you are - just wish he could have had patience and wait 70 plus more years. He needs your wisdom though. God Bless you and your beautiful family.
I was Rusty's Rabbi in Cleveland and I remember him as a sweet young man with a bit of mischief in his eye. You never quiet knew what he was thinking but when he opened his mouth there was always something insightful to his words. I feel deeply for his parents and his wife and children for there is no harder death than to lose someone through this act of Homicide. My condolences, Rabbi Dan Roberts, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Emanu El, Cleveland, Ohio
Although we will not be there, Mom and Dad will be and we will always carry you and Rusty in our hearts and our prayers. The memories will always live on. Our deepest condolences.
What can we, can anyone, say or do to take away this pain? I've been staring at the screen for 30 minutes without a word. We love you guys. Always will. Andrea, we want to squeeze you tight and not let go.
Russ was a solid guy. Stand up guy. The guys down here at Rizzo's are deeply upset that are friend will not be coming in anymore. If the family needs anything, contact Sal at Rizzo's.
Andrea, our love, thoughts and prayers are with you and all the Sneiderman family. No words can express our shock and sadness.
I am fortunate to have known Rusty. He was truly a delightful person who had keen intellect an engaging sense of humor. He was one of the proudest fathers I have ever known. He will be deeply missed by many. My condolences to his friends and family.
Having known Mr. and Mrs. Sneiderman and Rusty since I was knee high I am touched by all of the kinds things people have said. My heart goes out to the family and all of the friends he made so easily and so sincerely. May his children know his legacy and may his memory be a blessing to all who knew and loved him.
I am so so so sorry for this incredible loss. I am thinking of you and your family.

Andrea and the whole family:
We are all so very sorry for your loss. You will be in all our thoughts and prayers and wish you strength in the coming weeks.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sneiderman family. Rusty was the kind of friend who always looked for ways he could help without concern for what it meant for him.
I was just commenting on November 7th when I last saw him, how handsome Rusty was and what a beautiful family he had. I hadn't seen my cousin much since we were dorky kids, so I was just struck by what a handsome and successful family man he had turned into. We were blessed to be able to hug him so recently...
MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH THE FAMILY AT THIS VERY SAD TIME!!!!
MY PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY
Rarely do we ever cross paths with another who connects on a deep level with a stranger in an instant. I met Rusty two weeks ago at a charity fundraiser and spent the day with him. He impressed me so much I felt compelled to tell a mutual friend how highly I thought of him already. Rusty treated others they way we all should...with kindness, respect, and a lack of judgement. I know those who knew him well learned a lot from him and loved him. Just an outstanding human being. Chad Wise (Atlanta, GA)
To the Sneiderman family, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I went to IU with Rusty and lived on his floor our sophomore year of college. He was a great guy.
Rusty will be missed by all those who knew him. He was a friend who was smart and talented. He was always trying to help others as well. This is such a tragedy and loss.
My prayers go out to his wife and children.
Many prayers go out to the family. There is no sorry that Heaven can not heal.

To the Sneiderman family ~
I did not know Russell personally however we use to speak to each other at the Dunwoody Starbucks from time to time. Russell was always very cordial, very nice, young man. I will miss seeing him and saying "hello" to him from time to time.
My prayers and my thoughts are with his family.
