Dear Jeff , Sharon, Matthew & Benjamin,
We were so sad to hear of your dad , father in-law and PawPaw’s passing! He fought with all his might to win over Covid . He didn’t win the way we were all praying for , but he won the victory over the Beast of a Virus by going to Heaven! Your memories & love for your grandfather can never be taken away.... Love to all the Family! Prayers & wish we could have been there..... Pastor Buddy & Candy Pigg

David Russell was such a kind and caring man. Always at church he always had kind words to say. When I would miss church or if he would hear I wasn't doing well, he would call me to make sure I was ok. I will miss him greatly and I am praying for his family as they go through this loss. He is home with the Lord now.
