Russell and his family were long time friends of the Kubiak’s. I’m sure John, Wilma, Diane, and now Bob are together again shooting the breeze with Russell and Maryanne. God bless you all and may you find comfort in the wonderful memories that you created over the years.

Uncle Russell was so much fun growing up. Us cousins would run around the farm having fun while he was always so hard at work. At Thanksgiving we would all giggle about him falling asleep in the chair after eating. My deepest sympathies to the Blooms, you’re always in my thoughts. I love you all.
