At one point in our lives Rusty and I were not only cousins, we were friends. Unfortunately life's journey took me away from the Mobile area and we lost touch. I wish I had made it back to Mobile more often to visit. Even though I hadn't seen him in years I still felt a closeness. I will miss him greatly and I'm sure people that remained near him will miss him more. He always had a smile and a great outlook on life that was contagious. The best tribute to Rusty is for us all to carry on his his love of others. I'm sure he is making all the angels in heaven smile now.
