    Aunt Dot,
    It is no secret that our families are connected by more than just friendship but we truly are family. The loss of your father is a loss of a grandfather to us and a great grandfather to my children. He will be missed by everyone. We love you all and cannot wait to celebrate Russ's life with you.
