    We are so sorry for your loss. Penny is going to miss his hugs and I’m going to miss the affection I saw in his eyes every time we shook hands. We only knew him such a short time, but what an impact he has made in our lives.

    To Margaret Ann and family, Harold and I are so sorry for your loss of Russell. He was a wonderful man and we were always so glad to see him and Ann anytime. Russell always had a smile on his face. We will miss him so much. He always reminded me of his mother, Mrs Ethel Blackwell Milton. Harold was so proud to be kin to Russell.
