Russell:

Well its that time of year again that its the hardest to deal with you being gone. I still hurt and wish i could tell you all the things that I are in my head and heart. You were an amazing man filled with love and grace. Its to bad you didn't get a chance to show people that. You changed peoples lives you know.... you didnt even have to try!!!! I love you for that for being such a positive influence for people. Rest well little brother I love you!!

Russell my lovely brother my heart has not healed all the way but know that you are surely loved and missed . It is just not the family that has missed you. As i set here thinking of you tonight and thinking of what you would say about me and this new job i have.. You would be proud but then again you would also laugh your butt off and tell me to not take any crap.How i wished i could talk to you because little brother i could use your thoughts and words right now. Here in January it will be 3 yrs since Allen and John took you from us and i know that everyone is getting better and stronger about what happened but there will always be a hole that won't close all the way. I miss you and love you my little brother aka bubba .

LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER YOUR BIG SISTER ,

Russell;

I miss you -- thank you for being my best friend growing up. I want you to know I always saw you for who you were not what you did. I don't think there are enough words to tell you exactly how much I love you.
