Praying for you all- Connie, Jennifer, Parker and family. And many dear friends of Russell's who will truly miss him. This sweet, fun loving guy left this earth too soon. One of my favorite memories of Russell is him "barefoot" water skiing and almost killing me trying to teach me how. We had lots of good times at Lake Travis and many good BBQ's at the Porter home. Many good memories of him. He will be missed.
