    I will never think of Popeye or Sunday School without a smile in remembrance of growing up with my little cousin Russ. May he rest in peace, and may Pat and Dave and the rest of his family feel the thoughts, prayers and hugs going out to them from our family. Love you...Di and Rob

    I'll never forget my younger cousin Russ' smile and the "hi, cuz" he would say when he saw me. He will be missed. Our sympathies, prayers and love go out to Pat and Dave and the rest of Russ' family. Love, Bren and Ken

    Uncle Russ the uncle we love remains with us , as do the memories of an awesome childhood of summer beach fun and competitive BBall games at your hour and Grama and Grampas, awell as fond Christmas memories. Memories do not fade just because a love one is gone. You know they say that everyone dies twice. Once when our physical being leaves this earth then again when our name is whispered for the last time. The people that love you will keep your name alive for a long time for love itself lives on. Do me a favor and give Grampa and Grama a hug for me when you see them and tell them I miss them very much. Until I see you again unc.
