Rufus was a kind and great person to be with. Having worked with him I knew him to be a hard worker and dependable friend. He was always asking me about God and I knew he a deep rooted concern for his spiritually. See you again one day buddy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you at this time,

The Norton and Foster families are so sorry to hear about Rudy. As neighbors on Eugene Street, my brother Tommy Norton, and nephews Junior Gatewood, Mike Norton, became friends. I am grateful that Rudy posted the picture of them on fb when they were young a few weeks ago. Will cherish it. We also would see his father and mother walking pass our house going to church. Very nice people. Praying for the family and that God will comfort you during this time of sorrow. God bless you. Magdalene Norton Foster.
