"Russ! I know you're out there. You and my dad,buddies again. I treasure the days spent at your table sharing memories. I always liked you, but in the final years I grew to love you.
As I used to say,"That's about it Russ." and you would say "Oh one more thing." and I would turn back for the hug and the kisses on our rough cheeks. I miss that and I miss you."

"Uncle Russ will forever be remembered by me and my family in New Jersey.  Whether visiting him in Florida or Michigan- it was always a memorable experience.  He brought such joy and happiness to the world.  I will always remember him as a hard working man with strong physical and personality characteristics.  My oldest Samantha had a great visit with him when she was a young child at Orlando's Mideival Times that we have fond memories of.  We all loved him dearly and will miss him and Aunt Eva forever.  Jersey Dave & Family"
