I'm so sorry for your loss. In times of grief, the Bible tells us to throw our burdens and sadness on God and it promises that "He will sustain us." (Psalms 55:22) I wish you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I have fond memories of spending time with Russell at grandma's when we were children & also with him spending time at our house with my family as we grew up. Russell was a kind hearted person & cared a lot about my mama & daddy. We all loved him & he will truly be missed.
