It's been a long time since I've been to this site. I've had other things going on in my life. It's sad news when you get a phone call and I'm told Russell's health isn't doing so well. If Russell is taken tomorrow, then his work is done here and he must move on. I've learned one thing from Russell, if you believe in something then stick with it and move forward. He opened my eyes up to those who would hurt another just for the fact they are different in skin color and culture. The US government is one of the biggest violators of this and continue doing it today.
Russell, thank you my friend for the many times you've stopped by and we had lunch/supper at the Chinese restaurant in Fountain, Colorado. The jokes you would tell were gut busting to say the least. I'll always remember the fortune cookie joke and still use it today. You have to be there.
Whatever Creator has in store for you is only our guess. Please come back as lightening and stage yourself over the Whitehouse.
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to family and clan, whose blood is our own veins. But to have a friend, and to be true under any and all trials, is the mark of a man!
