To the entire family of Russell Hyman, I extend my deepest sympathy. It is hard to express how sad I am at the news of her passing, but I am comforted to know that she is in heaven with her family members who have passed and with her dear Glenn. We will see her again one day, so take comfort in knowing that. She was a dearly loved person and will be missed very much.

Carla and Dee, your mother will be greatly missed. I spent many hours at your Mother's house in Lake City. I have many fond memories of our double dates and later trips to see friends. Your family will be in my prayers.

To Lucia, Wilma, Teena, Del, Carla and all family and friends-- I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Russell Hyman and I went to school, church, GA's and so many places together. We were classmates and, I am happy to say, friends. Unfortunately we lost touch after schoool but I have so many memories of times together. I pray your pain will be lessened by your good memories. Sincerely, Claire Weaver Cagle
