  4. As many of you know, RC was a good friend of mine. I always called him Arc, not RC. I will always remember the things he taught me and the laughs that we had. Never once did I hear him say anything bad about anyone, nor did I ever hear anyone say anything bad about him. He will be greatly missed, and I will always cherish the memories that we had. May God bless all of his family, each and every day.

    Love, Rusty,

  5. I was so sad to hear about Grandpa RC. I would give anything to be there with you today. I always loved coming to Williamsville knowing that he would be there sitting across the table with his hilarious comments. It was like I had my own Grandfather right in Illinois.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love,

    Casey
