So sorry to read about Mark's passing. He was a wonderful man. Always so kind and both he and LaVerne were excellent listeners. LaVerne and Mark and their son John were an important part of our lives when they lived in Portland. I know my sons always enjoyed being at their house and their friendship with John. We had many good memories.
With heartfelt sympathy,
Carol Ridlon

My heartfelt condolences to Laverne, John, and all other family members. I came to know the Rustin’s as a member of the North Deering Congregation Church. My son and John were close friends while in grade school. Mark was kind and gregarious and made a difference in many people’s lives. May your many memories of Mark’s presence in your family help you during this transition. Sincerely, Kathy Best

Sending love and big hugs to LaVerne and all of Mark’s family. We met Mark when he was pastor of our little church in Hiram. He was such a kind gentle man and a great hugger! He was responsible for the famous roast beef suppers put on monthly at the church as well as the much enjoyed men’s breakfast. Donna & Darryl Ward, Hiram
