Russ was my grandpa, and I have at least a million memories with him. Some of my favorites include sitting on the kitchen floor in my grandparents house and eating cookies from the cookie jar. He would even get it out when we weren’t supposed to :). I loved to go to the bate shop with him up north and get scary movies to watch at night (even though he would always fall asleep and leave grandma and me to watch them together). I would never let him forget the one time I out fished him - even though he let us stay out on the lake until I caught one more fish than him that day. He always told me how much he loved my grandma whenever she walked out of the room, and I think that was my favorite thing he would do. I already miss him and will continue to miss him forever on. 143-55 grandpa.
