16 years ago you were waving me enthousiastically at the airport before we had even ever met. Before I could introduce myself, I was embraced in a big hug . A few weeks ago we met again and we could talk and connect and I could thank you once again for all the things you've done for me during my exchange year as my host dad and Rotary councellor. I am so gratefull I've been able to hug you again so recently, but I had never thought it would have been the last time.
At this moment it is with a heavy heart that I join your family and friends when they say their last good-byes. Rest in peace Rusty.
