It is of great sorrow to learn of the passing of my cousin Russ. I will forever remember his radiant smile and easy going demeaner. May his family find comfort in the God of tender mercies. (2 Cor 1:3,4)

We met Russ when he and Betsy attended the Stroke Survivors and Caregivers group. He was a quiet man and cared very well for Betsy. We are so very sorry for your loss.
