My heartfelt condolences, Joanie, to you and to your lovely family. I am so sorry to hear about Russ’s passing. I have so many fond memories of the time that Russ and Ron and Denise worked together – and of course all those Advertising Club of Edmonton awards evenings, and the gatherings you hosted in your lovely home. I know he will be dearly missed. I hope that in the days and weeks and months ahead you are visited with moments of joy as you remember Russ and grieve this loss. – Jodine
