Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing your father Rusty.  I got to know him when he was a resident at WoodHaven; when my now deceased husband became a resident there, Rusty befriended him and welcomed him as a daily eating partner at his dining table.  I so very much appreciated that!!  I also appreciated the fact that he took a picture of my husband and me in October 2019 and gave it to me -- that was the last picture I have of Peter since he passed in November 2019.  The picture is now on my refrigerator, and I also think of your dad every time I look at it.  May peace be with you.
