After Glow
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
summer days.
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
˜Helen Lowrie Marshall

-Although Bob has passed away, we shall not let grief blacken long our sky.
For just as death is part of life, so Bob lives on forever in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
Bob's life was one long adventure. With one foot in the corporate world and the other in the world of entertainment, he seamlessly combined two full lives into a single extraordinary one. As Robert Shuman Hanna, he was a corporate executive, beloved husband, father and grandfather; as Dusty Russell he was a daredevil stuntman, automobile thrill show impresario (World Champion Auto Daredevils), movie star (Steel Arena), world record holder, and more. Always modest and humble to a fault, beneath his deceptively calm and gentle persona lay a fierce, competitive spirit, totally without fear of anyone or anything.
And so he has slipped the surly bonds of earth and and will dance forever in the Heavenly skies, and be remembered forever in our hearts.
