Russell was a true friend to me. I never would have gotten through high school without his help. He was always there and accepted me with no reservation. I’m not physically able to attend his funeral. But, I will be there in spirit. I send my prayers and good wishes to his family. I know that it’s a tough time for you. If there is anything that I can do to help, please know that I will.
