Thanks to everyone for remembering my grandfather. With all the hate for our police lately I’ve thought a lot about you. Your son(my father) misses you everyday. Just a few years ago they finally added you to the fallen officer Morial celebration in Newton and we never miss it. Sadly this year it was moved to the fall but we will still be there. Fly high grandpa rusty. Until we meet, I love you R.I.P.
