Roger and Rusty and family - our sympathies to you all. I enjoyed the few times i had conversations with Russell. i remember his excellent masonry work on our building project at Grace back in the early 80's. We trust that you will sense God's presence in your loss and experience His grace going forward. Sincerely, John and Jane Rowe
