    I was very sorry to hear about your loss. I hope your family and friends are able to share many stories about Mr. Russell–some touching and some humorous– to assist you through this tough time. Additionally, I’ve found that encouraging friends to talk about Mr. Russell down the road–long after this week’s services–can be helpful as well. Our thoughts are with you.
