Remember how you used to jump up & down like a leap frog while grunting, snorting, growling & screaming in your little daughter’s face? Remember how you said, He’s not down there, He’s right here? I do! Wow! I was traumatized as a child at the disgusting vile hands of your abuse. You wanted me to believe you were the devil. I may have believed it then but as an adult I knew you were just sick in the head. But now, since you took your last breath.. I have a question for you… Is he ( SATAN ) down there? Because I know you are rotting in hell. I am your only biological child and I am nothing like you. I am loving & caring and I gave my soul to Jesus Christ. You can’t ever hurt me, my Mom, or my sisters and brothers ( who are NOT related to you at all). I hope you get everything you deserve.

I don’t even know where to start, you were such an important part of my childhood, my happiest memories growing up were with you in my life & living Limestone. I remember the apple tree out behind the house, the cherry trees, watching you plow the garden with the horses, Pete & Bud, the pony pulls, going to Dallas in the wagon & all the good times. You were my Dad, RIP Russ. Heaven gained another angel.. Love ya

R.I.P. Uncle Russ. I’m so glad you were a part of my life as a kid. We had a lot of fun, thanks to you. You amazed us by walking outside in a foot of snow wearing nothing but a pair of shorts. I have thought of you many times throughout the years. Prayers for comfort & peace to all who knew & loved him.
