Tim & Sue Warden, January 21, 2019 Rassie was a true friend, great neighbor and man of character. It was an honor to know him. My deepest sympathy to his loved ones. Jenny Cox, January 20, 2019 Our heartfelt sympathy and condolences are with Rassie’s family, close friends, neighbors, classmates, FBC members, I.O.O.F. members, FHS Ex-students Association Members, Farmersville Main Street Events and Audie Murphy Day members, former military friends, and those other groups that he supported, held a position, and shared his time and life with. We will miss his presence, greeting, kindness, positive light, handshake, smile, laughter, genuine friendship, and sharing of God’s love with each of us. His encouraging words lifted us and were delivered with sincerity, genuine caring concern, and from a Christian heart that gave all he had to each friendship, endeavor, and event in his life. Luckily, he lives in our memories, our hearts, and eternally in our Father’s house. God bless each of you and keep Rassie in your care.
