My thoughts are with you and family at this difficult time Dorothy. Russ and dad were so close and I will never forget the Tuesday ROMEO breakfasts they went to. I thank Russ for picking dad up when he was unable to drive to them. Russ was a wonderful Christian and will be missed. Colleen Krouse Norman.

Dear Mrs. Stein and Jim,
Mom and Dad told me the news of Mr. Stein's passing. I was flooded with happy memories of The Stein Family. I have fond memories of growing up in Druid Hills UMC and MYF with The Steins as youth leaders, Sunday School teachers, heck any job needed doing Y'all were available. I thank you for your guidance and love. Please know that I have been a member of my small town Methodist church for 32 years. Mr. Stein is with our Lord and Savior, he will be missed at Druid Hills.
Love, Hugs and Prayers,

Dorothy, Jim, Karen & Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sorry we could not come down. We will always have fond memories of Lake Weir and Columbus Zoo. And I'll never forget going rabbit hunting with Brother Russell at the strip clay pit at Finzer Brother brick yard, and many other memories.
We will miss Brother Russell.

Dear Dorothy,
I remember Russ picking my Dad up for their every Tues. "breakie" club. He and Dad were such wonderful friends. They both will be truly missed. I'm so glad that I was able to visit you both on my last trip down. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time and I will come visit in Sept. Love Karen

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm so thankful dad and mom were able to come down in January to spend time with you - and also thankful that Dave and I were there for a short visit too. One of my favorite memories of uncle Russell is when he would line all us kids up in the hallway after swimming at the lake and he would pour rubbing alcohol in our ears so we wouldn't get ear ache! We had so much fun coming down to see you when we were on our family vacations! Of course I will never forget our first trip to Disney World when hurricane Agnus came through. The water was up to our ankles and we stood in the pouring rain waiting for our shuttle bus to take us to the car. The man driving the shuttle said "welcome to Florida, the sunshine state"! We all laughed. I loved coming to see you in your Winnebago at the ball park in Sugarcreek. You were the first two people to see my engagement ring (mom and dad weren't home so I walked up to show you). I admire your strong faith in God and celebrate with Russell knowing he won the victory and is with our Lord! Blessings to you, Jim and the family, Love, Marsha & Jeff
