Dear Dianne and family, I was so sad to hear about Russell. Your heart must greave so much. I know how much you meant to each other. He often spoke about you and the girls. Although, God took him away from you way to soon,how fortunate that you found the love of your life for forty-seven years. I know words cannot heal your pain. Russell was more than a customer to me , he was a trusted friend. I will especially miss his great sense of humor and smile. Unfortunatly, I will not be able to make it to the visitation as I am on a family vacation in North Carolina. Please give me a call as we discussed when you see fit . Again , my thoughts and prayers are with you.
