Father inlaw

Just letting you all know Russ passed away last night...Thursday, July 9th 2009 around 10:36 pm. I will let you all know when the funeral will be when we know more.

Kent is one proud son...he adored this man! He loved his Dad very much and he will be SO missed...

Our family with Russ and Deb.

We got these pics taken a couple of weeks ago (Father's Day) and we just got them back. They turned out great!

This picture speaks a thousand words when I look at it...she adored her Papa and you can see it in her eyes.

Oh Barb! I just got word of your father in law's funeral being held at the East Stake Center on Monday. I am the booking agent for the building and hence the reason for the contact. I shouldn't have been surprised, but I was. I immediately jumped on here to see what you posted.

What BEAUTIFUL photos! What a great way to remember to love that is shared in your entire family. Just awesome and SO powerful!

I will see you on Sunday night at the viewing maybe. I know you will be quite busy with family and so I may not interrupt, but just know that I am there in support of you and your entire family.

My mom saw the obituary in the paper and called to let me know. I am so sorry to hear this sad sad news. I hope you are holding up okay and I love the pictures you were able to get before he passed. They are priceless as was his relationship with each of you. This could have been any of us that have fathers that age and I guess it always strikes at the heart a bit more when I realize that this could be me in the same situation-you just never know what life will hit you with. My heart aches for the whole family and I pray that the next few days will go smoothly and that the Spirit will be strongly felt to comfort you. Much love and prayers~Erica
