Marjorie, So hard to believe that time has passed so quickly, and I so hope you and family are doing well. In case Ralph's guest book goes offline soon, I just wanted to send my love and prayers to you. Little did we know that Sonny would be joining his dear friend, Ralph, in heaven October 5, 2013. I just know they are playing basketball on a beautiful golden court. And heaven still grows sweeter everyday. Best Regards, Ginny Poynter.

Ralph was a great neighbor and friend for almost 19 years. He will be greatly missed (but never forgotten) not only by his family, but by my family also

To The Fussner Family,
I had the privilege to work for Lt. Fussner when I started my Law Enforcement Career as a dispatcher at post #29. I was very blessed to work for him. He was a very caring and fair leader that always had time for everyone. He was a great role model for me as a young man. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time.
