    One day Russ when I make it up there I know you’ll offer me a beer and we’ll sit down chat, laugh together and of course tease each other till we laugh even harder. Whenever it may be that I raise my next beer, I’ll be thinking of you bud! No good byes my friend…as I’ll be seeing you again. Love from all the Browns.
