  • To Russell’s Family–

    I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with “Razz” and spent as much time at his house as my own. In case you’re wondering, he got the nickname “Razz” because of the candy Razzles. Every time I saw him, he had 2 or 3 packs in his pocket and in his mouth!! It turned into gum and seems like his favorite was grape.

    He always had a good sense of humor, and a story or a joke to tell. He could make you laugh even if you didn’t want to.

    I’ll miss him, but I know he’s in a better place with his dad and brother.

    Bye Razz….thanks for being a friend
