Rush was charming and delightful; a colleague in real estate that I always enjoyed being with. His sky was always "Carolina Blue".
My thoughts are with the family that he loved so much. Whit Moore

Rush was one of first individuals I met at Spring Valley CC. He befriended me then and was always someone I felt comfortable talking with. Our group of characters are moving on.

Jesse, Rush and Lee,

You have been constantly in my thoughts and prayers this week. I'm truly sorry for your loss. Rush was a charismatic person and always impeccably dressed! You, his children, were his greatest source of pride! I pray that God comforts you and gives you strength in the days ahead.

With Love,
Rajena Miles (Aunt Jena)

Lee, Jesse and Rush,
I will always remember how your Dad’s eyes would light up when any one of you would walk in the room. He was so proud of all of you and he loved you deeply. I can only imagine how bright his eyes are now, as he continues to watch you, surrounded by the God he loved so much.
All my love,
MOM and Zealy

Rush was a mentor and close friend for over fifty years. I knew this was coming but am still heartbroken. I hope he and Woody Jones are playing golf in heaven. I pray that his family finds God’s peace as they celebrate his life.
