    Russell will be greatly missed by myself and all of us at FedEx. He was far more than just a co-worker, but rather a great friend to many. Our deepest condolences go out to his family with hopes of finding some peace in the coming days.

    Russell you will be greatly missed. I was really looking forward to all of the Scouting adventures coming up. To say I was shocked when I learned of your passing only days after we completed our first backpacking trip together is an understatement. Until we meet again my friend. Happy Scouting in heaven.

    The truth is that they come to you when you are not ready, and leaves when you need them most. Life moves on in a stream and glad that you were there with us.
