Uncle Russ wasn't my blood, but he and my Dad were friends before I was born. My whole life ( 48 years) he was known to me as Uncle Russ. I was lucky enough to have spent time with him as a child (he lived with us for a time) and even more as an adult. We shared a love of fishing and the races. We talked politics and told jokes. I loved him, and I will miss him so much. I am thankful for the time I had with him. He will be missed by our whole family. The picture is of my husband, my Dad, and Uncle Russ. We took Uncle Russ and my Dad out to dinner for their birthdays. It was not long after this photo was taken that my Dad passed away.
