To Friends and Family of Mr. Russel,
I was saddened to hear the news of Mr. Russel's passing, I send my heart felt condolences. I had the opportunity of meeting Mr. Russel on a airplane flight out of Newark, New Jersey. He was on the same flight as I was, and was sweet enough to come over and say hello to my 3 year old daughter, which he called her little 'Poopie' like her Mom. I also got an autograph from him, he said he would give me an autograph only if he could touch my hair, which at the time was at lease 4 feet long, I said yes. He was a great person from what I know of him. I always watched him on the game shows too.
He will surely be missed, again I send my deepest sympathy to the family.
