    Sam and I met Rusty & Carol before the turn of the century. How much fun it has been to get in deep conversations with him (science,politics, computers), realizing just how much you don't know and he does! He was my co-pilot riding to Dowsers meetings as he devoted several years to being Treasurer for them. He may be gone from this earth but I know that all of us will have a bit of Rusty with and in us from now on. There's always a reason you meet someone special....and that he was & still is. Marilyn
