It has been several months since I began this tribute for Rusti. Right
after I began this, Ike came to Texas and several other of life's twists
and turns set me off task. This is being updated March 12, 2009 with the
same great love and respect for Rusti and the same intent to honor her.

With all my love for Rusti and her  family,
Hoist up our Annie B’s Sail
See how her main life's Tale sets                     
Call for the Lord afar
Let her go home, let her go home                             

She wants to go home
We all feel so broke up, but
She wants to go home

So, hoist up our Annie B’s Life’s Sail
See how her main Life’s Tale sets
Call for the Lord on the Far Shore
Let her go home, let her go home

Why don’t you let her go home
We feel so broke up, but                                                                                                                 
Let her go home

















So…..
Hoist up our Annie B’s Sail
See how her main life’s Tale sets
Call for the Lord afar
Let her go home, let her go home
She wants to go home
We all feel so broke up, but
She wants to go home

So, hoist up our Annie B’s Life’s Sail
See how her main Life’s Tale sets
Call for the Lord on the Far Shore
Let her go home, let her go home
Why don’t you let her go home
We feel so broke up, but she wants to go home
Let her go home

SHE IS HOME!!!
SLOOP ANNIE B.    
Uncle Don, Aunt Pat, Blake and Shawn
That's me in Bubba's lap (Taken in
Malakoff 1940?)
This is my way of “hoisting up” my Annie B’s
life's Tale. She was "one of a kind" and we all
will miss her and each in a special way because
she had a way of being “special” to each of us.

This is to be sung to the tune of “The Sloop
John B” I hope you don’t find this too trite, but
this came to me and I felt very strong about
writing it down. Words can never express what
Rusti meant to us, but through words we can
re-live some of the great times we all shared;
realizing that we can not keep our loved ones
with us forever. God has a better use for them.
