Dear Doris ,
Henry and I share our Heartfelt Sympathy, to you and your family,
upon the passing of Russell. It was always a pleasurer to see you both in church,
on a Sunday morning and visit with you in your home.
We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Russell was my dear uncle and I have many wonderful memories of him in my childhood. Silly games and songs. A warm, sweet and gentle man. It gave me great pleasure to know he had such a long, loving marriage with Doris. My deepest condolences to her and her family.

To Doris and Family, I am so very sorry to hear of Uncle Russell’s passing.
He was such a kind, loving man. Everyone should feel privileged to have known him.
