I must correct my little Sister Chris Goodman (Morse). It was definitely Lake Wildnerness with the infamous 'fang tree' that threatened to eat Rusty. Luckily it was not hungry that night. It was also the night that Scott Dilsaver and I saw a full moon. Thanks Rusty! I may not have only known and been around you briefly sir but the Lake Wilderness story goes back 40 years and that memory has not faded one bit. That's the piece of Rusty I will always remember. Rest in peace my friend. You made my childhood just that much brighter.

I got to know Rusty by seeing him 3 times a week for over 12 years. You knew if he was having a bad day or a good day right off the bat! He was well loved by all the staff and spoke of his son's often. Heaven gained another angel to watch over you.

I can’t even summarize our life together into a single paragraph. You changed my life for the better, you gave me so much purpose, taught me so many things. You taught me to be strong, to always be sympathetic to everyone struggling inside and out. You taught me what it’s was truly like to be loved and to love others with every fiber in my body. I’m going to miss you forever, and long for you forever for the remaining years of my life. You made me promise to always keep going no matter how hard it might be sometimes. You were my first love and I will never love anyone like I loved you. We had so many great times together, sometimes you really knew how to get on my nerves, but you made me sensitive and soft. I will forever miss you my love! Please show me all the time when I need you that your here for me. I promise Like I promised you I’ll make your momma is okay, and be here for her while trying to hold myself up too. You fought so hard, you were the strongest most amazing man I have ever known in my life. I’m so greatful to have had you into my life. I love you so so much, my Rusty dog.

Oh yes the camping,Lake Wilderness was another favorite!

Chris on Apr 12, 2019

We remember camping with the Maddox's.... Rusty was with us one time at 7 Ponds Park. I'll never forget it, because he decided to sleep outside and he kept going on and on about the tree above him had fangs! He kept yelling at our brother, David..."David!! It's gonna get me!". He was hilarious and the Maddox's were fun camping neighbors. Bless him and our hearts are with you all at this difficult time. Chris Goodman (Morse)
