Thank you from the Rusty Bowers Suicide Prevention Coalition and RRCS

A special thank you to our community for supporting Rusty’s Coalition. Without all of you, it wouldn’t be possible.

To Mayor Michael Olinger, for our proclamation every year for recognizing Oct. 17 as “Culpeper Suicide Awareness Day.” Thank you to council member Jamie Clancy for presenting the proclamation this year. To Alan Rasmussen and the RBSPC Board members, Roberta Jackson – Dovely Moments for the Beautiful Dove release in memory of our son Rusty and so many others who have lost their lives to suicide. Rev. Judy Johnson for your prayer and sharing your songs. Cheryl Jackson for reading the poem “I’m Free,” RRCS for lunch, Mr. Frank Wells at WJMA Radio Station. Joelle Kern for all your hard work on our auction.

Thank you to Aubrey Driggers who shows up early, year after year to entertain us with your beautiful music. We know we can always count our your support. Lanie Bostain read a poem written by one of her students. That poem stays on my and and truly was emotional and from the heart. Thank you from sharing.

Whether you said a prayer, made a donation, released a dove or a balloon, walked for Rusty or or your loved one. Thank you and God Bless you.

Brenda, Junior and Dustin Bowers
