    I am so sorry for your loss. I was just asking Ellen about Russ last Saturday. He was always special to me, he was my swim buddy and a good friend. Have been missing you two at the reunions and lunches. If you decide to have a memorial of any kind, please let me know when and where. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and I know Russ is at peace.
