Russell was one of best friends growing up, and I cannot imagine a nicer, kind-hearted person. It seems like yesterday that Russell, John, Chris, Jimmy, and I were listening to John's radio on 26th Street and having the time of our lives. Some of my best memories of growing up included times that I spent with Russell. He will be missed.

My prayers and condolences go out to Russell and his family. I wish I would have had the pleasure to spend more time with him. I haven't really seen Russell much since high school but he is one of those guys that you never forget. He was a very kind and fun guy, and will be missed

Words fall short of expressing my sorrow for your loss. My younger brother John used to play with Russell. I remember him being around the house and neighborhood in our younger days on 26th Street in Metairie.
