May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Nancy and Julie, I remember how cool I thought it was to see all the family history Uncle Russell had and the stories of how he collected so much of it. He always took the time to explain it even when Eric and I were kids.
Mark Allison and Family
Nancy and Julie, I remember Uncle Russell letting me play an old guitar when I was first learning. I also loved his stories about the history of the Desch family. I will cherish memories of picking cherries and running with dachshunds and pass them on.
Eric Allison and family
Julie, if you went to Holy Spirit grade school, I was in your class. When I noticed your father's last name in the paper, then your name, I thought I would let you know an old school friend is thinking of you. Your father sounds like he was a very special man. I am sorry for your loss. firstname.lastname@example.org
Though I met Russell only a few times, he was easy to love from the start and will be missed dearly. I will be unable to attend the service, but will keep him, Zelma, and all those who will attend in my thoughts.
