    Rusty, my beloved friend and fellow writer, passed away this week. Here is a link to his Facebook Page.

    He was one of my favorites of all time. He was a good person to know and a better friend to have.

    Wow, this is shocking news. Such a loss.

    Yeah, Bente, it's sad. My sympathies to his family. We have to squeeze as much joy as possible from each moment in our lives, because each one could be our last. I think Rusty did that very well.

    Rusty could not attend, but was good enough to burn us a CD for the first DC Rally in 2006. They were our fight songs, songs like Los Lonely Boys Heaven, Eddy Brickell's cover of Hard Rains Gona Fall, CCR's Senator's Son. I thanked him in an email and he was most gracious. When they played on the pa with the Capital in the backround, it was a very emotional moment for me. Each song belonged there with us.
    To this day when ever I hear Heaven (most especially) I think of 2006 DC and Rusty's wonderful contribution to that special day!

    This is for you Rusty,


    Save me from this prison
    Lord help me get away
    Cause only you can save me now
    From this misery
    Cause I've been lost in my own place
    And I'm getting' weary
    How far is heaven
    And I know I need to change
    My ways of livin'
    How far is heaven, Lord can you tell me

    Cause I've been locked up way too long
    In this crazy world, how far is heaven
    I just keep on prayin' Lord
    Just keep on livin', how far is heaven
    Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven
    I just got to know how far, how far is heaven
    Lord can you tell me

    Tu que estas en alto cielo,
    Echame tu bendiciòn
    [translated from Spanish]
    [You that's in a higher place
    Send me down a blessing]

    Cause I know there's a better place
    Than this place I'm livin', how far is heaven
    So I just got to show some faith
    And just keep on giving, how far is heaven
    Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven
    I just wanna know how far, how far is heaven,
    Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven,
    'cause I just gotta know how far,
    I just wanna know far

    Oh, man...

    Rusty was a good guy, and too young to die.
