I used to wait on Mr. Russell consistently while i worked at a local restaurant several years ago (approx '05-'09)
While I hadn't seen him in years, when i saw his picture in the paper today, my heart sank. He was a very kind soul who was always so polite and patient. I remember several occasions (on very slow nights) when i have pulled up a chair and joined in lighthearted conversation. Prayers for his family, so very sorry for your loss!
