I'm so sorry for your lost, I can't imagine your pain, but here is a scripture so that you can meditate on when you're feeling hopeless John 5:29 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

It is very difficult to say goodbye to the patriarch of the Ruszkiewicz family, Joe Rusz I had the honor of being his god son. He was a distinguished man of accomplishment in all that he was involved with during his long wonderful life. He was a example for all of us who knew him. I always enjoyed seeing over the years. During the years he was always a kind caring man and he was the source of so much great advice to me for which I will be eternally grateful. What an example he set for all of us in our great family. I will remember him fondly always and thank him for being my uncle. Janet and I and daughters Vivian, Elisa and Michelle have been blessed with his presence for all these years. Edward Ruszkiewicz MD

I will always remember your father and the great times we had during our visits in Washington and your visits to the lake with us. Uncle Joe was a good man who always went out of his way to make our family feel welcomed when we were together. I know his loss is painful but you are blessed as he left you a bucket full of incredible memories. Our family wishes you peace and comfort in those memories. We will always have fond memories of those times as well. We have made a donation in Uncle Joes name to the Hospice Facility as per his request. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Rest in Peace Uncle Joe Gary & Chris, Andrew & Monica, Nate & Jen Ruszkiewicz

You are truly missed by all. Loved when you came to Cleveland and visited my mom and dad. I enjoyed going there to see you and Aunt Fid. Now you are all reunited again. Will keep you in our prayers. With Love, the Ruszkiewicz Family
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Joe Rusz, or Mr. Rusz, as I called him, was a larger than life presence in our cul de sac in McLean -- Roberta Court. He had a veritable apple orchard in his back yard, and made the production of perfect fruit from those trees seem easy. It was only later in life that I learned how much effort it really took to consistently coax that quality of fruit out of trees. He had a commanding presence and a great laugh. He supported all of us on the cul de sac as if we were his kids -- and it made for a pretty big family with 18 of us in six homes. He was a good father, a good husband (as far as I could tell, being a kid and all), a good neighbor and a friend to all. And he had the good fortune to be sharp-minded and -witted until the end. His passing leaves a void for Joe, Dan and Peggy, I know, but there is some consolation in knowing that he passes leaving behind a long life well lived. My prayers are with the whole family. God bless Joe Rusz.
