Dear Laura,
We were sorrowed in learning of your father’s death. He was a kind and gentle person and we enjoyed his friendship over the years. Now he joins your mother in the arms of a loving Father in that realm of saints that surround His heavenly throne.
May God comfort you and your family with His compassionate love which we have found in the Lord Jesus Christ and His promises. May God’s richest blessings be yours.
Joyce and Pastor Dick Faust

all cherish your memories of him.

We became friends at Wedgwood Estates over coffee (and cookies) in the early mornings. What a nice, gentle man Russell is.

He taught me the inner workings of his submarine and so much more. I hope he found others eager to hear his stories.

I am much richer for having known him for only a short time.
