David Everett (cousin)

Russell was a favorite cousin from the first moment that I met him when I was in Radville with my mother (Juliette), sister, and nieces in order to attend his youngest sister’s wedding. Instantly he was able to make me laugh and I felt that I had known him all my life. I pray that he will be on the other side waiting for me when I arrive.
