Judy, I am so sorry for your loss. You and Russell were always so kind to me when I was around you as a teenager and young adult and I can only imagine how much he will be missed. I have such fond memories of you both, and pray for God's peace for you and all his family and friends.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We both thought the world of Russell. Buck enjoyed his friendship and golf outings.
