    Wendy, Nikki and Denise; I just found out about your Dad’s passing. I’m so sorry I wasn’t there for you. I have great memories of hunting with Buddy, and y’all, and driving that Jeep. I think we all learned how to drive using that thing! He was my Daddy’s best friend and “Mick” meant the world to him and me. Love y’all, Rusty
