"Hey Russ. I was thinking about you today. I remember a couple of Christmas' ago you stayed up until almost 3 am to help me decorate my tree. Even though I was broke u said " Santa is real just because you don't see him, doesn't mean he can't see the good you do" The next day I got the lil present you left for me. You were such an honest friend. Went to the "Crazy" u know what I'm talking about. Tipped a fatty and had a bucket to my self. Left one for you in the bucket. Last one is always the coldest. Miss you man. Wish you were here to bring in the new year. Alright you hated long texts so I'll let you get back to the pool table in the sky. Muah"

"So many unanswered questions and whys.  I miss our phone & Skype calls and go back and check often to see if you're online still, funny how that still happens and what an impact a person leaves on others.

Fly high and live in peace Russell and know that there are many down here who's lives you touched and who will NEVER forget about you"

"Rusty, my life will never be the same without you. You were my little brother. We were inseparable. Onmy God could have divided us and he did,..... but not forever. I know I will see you again. I am so proud of everything you accomplished in your short time here on Earth. You would be so proud of lil Jayson Russell. I know you are his guardian angel and will watch over us all until that blessed day we see you again. This special came on CNN tonight called "To Heaven and Back" and the stories on there were people that died and came back. Everyone described an overwhelming sense of peace and unconditional love. I know that is what you feel now and that Jesus is taking wonderful care of you. I miss you so very much and I love you with all my heart and soul. Aunt Gail and Jayson feel the same and we can't wait to finally see your beautiful smiling face again. Love u! Xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo always n forever"

"Miss you cuz... <3"

"The night 1 year ago when I got the call from the hospital I thought I was picking up a banged up kid.  Little did I know of the devastation that lay ahead.  You had come by 3 hours earlier giving me a great big bear hug and kiss and telling me thanks for the tough love and how it had opened your eyes to the path you were on and how proud you were of the changes you had made in your life.  You Jena and I were a special family.  Although the pain is still excruciating, I know you are at peace and waiting for all that loved you.  I love you and miss you dearly.  This candle is in tribute to you... until we meet again.... NeeNee"
