Sorry for the loss of your husband. I knew Rudy from the Man to Man Support Group. He was a really great guy. We shared a lot at those meetings. Praying God will strengthen you and comfort you. John Balko

I'm sorry I wasn't there in body but I was definately there in spirit. I will never forget the time Rudy made us all lay under that water balloon that ended up being about 3 feet long and must of weighed a hundred pounds! We sure trusted him. I love you all. See you again Rudy!
