Sincere condolences Joan, Bryan and Dean on the sad loss of Russ. I have 2 distinct memories. When I was in hospital when I was 5, he brought me in a blue Formula one Matchbox Toy. He would have been 18. The second was finding an old pair of Russ's Ruby boots in Grandma and Grandads shed. I would have been about 13. They were 5 sizes too big. I had heard stories of his playing prowess and Grandma said I could have them. I stuffed them with newspaper and wore them until I was 19. Myself, Sarah, Aleisha, Jeremy and Lily are thinking of you at this sad time. Very sorry we can't be there to offer our support on Wednesday but you are all in our thoughts. All our love.
