Russell was my soul mate for the past 22 years (married for 15 years) and was the love of my life for all those years, yes, we had our ups and downs as all men and women do that have a relationship but I loved and took care of him until the very end and never regretted helping him as best I could. He will be missed by me more than anyone else but it was time for Jesus to take him home. He got to stay here at home until he was called away. GOD rest his soul and wait for me one day in the distant future. I still have a long time to serve Jesus in this world. He was a good person at heart and never hurt me physically. Rest in Peace my love.
