  1. Corine, My name is Doris Lucero. I used to work at Columbia Savings and Wells Fargo Bank. You and Russ were our customers at both places. I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Russ was a character and will be missed. Take care and God Bless you all.

  2. Connie & Family,
    I am sorry for your loss. One of the things I will always remember is Russ’ deep warm voice and the smell of his tobacco. Sincerly,
