Dear Rita and von Schwedler Family -

My wife Sherry and I send our deepest condolences to you all on this saddest of occasions. Rusty was a wonderful man and co-worker who was loved and respected by his co-workers at Picatinny. One can hardly think of a kinder and decent gentleman and our lives were enriched with him in it. It was just like Rusty to keep in touch with all of us at our picnics, retirement and Christmas parties and he always brought a smile to everyone's face with his sincerity and grace. May the attached photo from our last summer picnic these remind us that he is in our hearts forever. We pray that he now has rest and peace with the Lord and other loved ones. With sympathy and love.
