    Always enjoyed having Russel work with us as a young man. Helping all the neighbor farmers. I pray that the Lord will be with you during this time Daisy.

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I was a friend of Russell’s from Cuba. He was always so energetic and friendly and had so many good stories to tell. He took me on my first motorcycle ride because I was Kent’s little sister. Thinking of you all in this sad time. May God comfort you.

    I am so sad to hear of Russell’s passing. I will always remember him as being so fun and kind to me while he worked at Grandma and Grandpa’s. He and Elizabeth took me and did so many cool things and I learned all the words to every Van Halen song in the early 80’s in his car. My prayers are with you and his family.
