  12. I’ve known Russ and worked along side him since the 70’s, and in all that time we have remained good friends. Not only because we liked each, but he was the best one of my drivers that I could always count on. We put in some LONG hours and no matter what I asked of him, he was there. We’ve had some good times…. I’ll always miss him.
