Rudy was such a nice man. I only had the pleasure of being around him a couple of times but he was very kind and genuine. I know he will be missed and I pray that God gives his family the strength you need to get through this. Also, he had a lovely singing voice and I am sure he is now in heaven singing with the angels. God Bless You All. Debra Choate Harl, October 3, 2012 I am deeply sorry for the loss of your dear family member and friend. Your family is in my prayers. Rose Ann Ancell, October 2, 2012
