Rusty & Beth, we are so very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Sounds like he lived an amazing, adventurous & blessed life. We didn't need to know him to realize that he had to be an amazing man . . . He raised an amazing son! Blessings to you & your family. May God keep you in his tender mercies during this time of grief. We love you guys. Robyn & Bill Chestnut
