I'm pretty sure that photo of Rusty tending the grill is the only one of him on the net. So thanks for that CA. And for breaking the horrible news to us in the first place and then being our conduit to his family. Offering prayers of comfort to them and you as this anniversary dredges up feelings of sadness. I pray our fond remembrances outrun the feelings of loss and sadness a little more each day/month/year.

Rusty's sudden passing sure has made me more conscious of my own frailty, as he and I were about the same age I think.

Been smoking more of Rusty's pipes lately. Still miss him very much.

This was his Savinelli Autograph that he bought in 1974 back in Vancouver, BC (pipe is from 1972) at The Bay downtown. The tobacco was gifted to me by his widow. GL Pease "Raven's Wing".

Anyone else smoking their pipes from Rusty?
