My deepest condolences on the loss of your father/grandfather. Russ was a very special person. I have had the privilege of knowing him for the past 11 years as a member of the Winter Haven Optimist Club. He will be missed by all who knew him.

We are remembering your Dad, and our friend Russ (and your Mom) in these days. He seemed to live his life with a gentle joy, and good humor. While we've not seen him, or any of you who have loved him so dearly, in many years, please know that those days in Mason were a great joy to be connected in the family of God. May you know the assurance that he had, and is now experiencing, in the Great Beyond. Praying for you!
