Rest In Peace uncle Russell. I added some of my favorite pictures of you as a memory. Three from when I was 12-14 years old we came to visit you and the family. I remember that you would flip your eye lids inside out to freak me out all the time. The most memorable two pictures I shared was the day of my wedding 16 years ago when you walked me down the aisle on my wedding day. I will never forget that day and you. I was so honored that you said yes when I asked you if you would walk me down the aisle. You made my day that more special than it was already. I know you are up in heaven with grandpa Milner, uncle Gary and Sherri. Give them our love. I love you uncle Russell. You will be missed by so many people. We all love you.

Russell will be missed by all of us. He was always so ready to visit with us at family gatherings. He was a caring, fun-loving guy. He made everyone feel special, and praised God for every blessing. I know he is at home with Jesus waiting for us to join him there.
