  1. I wish I had been given the chance to know Russ more. It was a joy to see him light up around his family, to smile over chocolates, and to share what little time I did with him. It is a legacy to have raised such kind and thoughtful children, to have had such a loving wife, and to have dedicated a life to healing. It is something to be proud of and I am sorry to his whole family for the loss.

  2. Kay, Anne, & Jon, Dawne and I are so sorry about your loss. You all have been in our thoughts and prayers. Please know that if there is anything we can do to assist you all, we are more than glad to help out. Have a safe trip home.
