Lura, for more than 50 years Rusty was my dearest friend and brother. Family, not by blood, but by choice. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you--my family. May God bless you now, and in the days to come. I will miss him so.

I will miss Rusty. We played a lot of tennis together at the Barn in Greenville. He was a joy to be around.

To the wonderful Boggs family, but especially to Vicki: I'm sitting here in my home in the UK sharing your grief. I love your family so much! Your parents treated me like their own crazy teenage daughter during our high school days. Your father was a gem of a man and a solid rock for you girls. I can see him laughing at some silly comment that we made now in my mind's eye! I know you will miss him. Miss Lura, I wanted you to know that I'm lifting you up in prayer..,that God will give you strength now and in the difficult days ahead. God Bless you all. Much love, Lyn (Hook) Kobes
