Rusty and I shared memories from our late teens. He was my prom date. My first motorcycle ride was with Rusty and we had many rides together. Oh gosh how we danced and danced to songs from Saturday Night Fever! Steve and Rusty are now back together. RIP my friend., you certainly saved this new kid in town from being lonely.
