I was truly saddened this morning when I saw the newspaper an found out that Rusty had passed away. It was not more than a couple of weeks ago that I last spoke to him. He did say he was having post surgery problems so I wished him well and said I would speak to him in the near future. We have been in business for 97 years and I have to say Rusty was one of the best vendors to work with.He always made us laugh when he sharpened our slicer blade or fixed one of our scales. He then would take a garbage bread or a racing paper for payment and say "Call us even". WE at LaPosta"s will miss him greatly..... Frank and Jim LaPosta
