Thinking of you mom. You still come to me whenever bubbles rise up in the air as I wash dishes. I still hear you talking to me in my best and my hardest times. I wish you could have met Timothy, he is quite the free spirit.
Love you forever.

Love you mom. I know you're still with me, I hear you all the time. I think you are happy I pushed to pursue my dream. The sun was shining so brightly yesterday, you would have loved sitting on my deck with me sharing some wine. You are so much a part of me.

Lou lit up the hearts of everyone she encountered with her genuine grace, wit, warmth and love. We felt feel relaxed, loved and blessed when we were near her. And that smile.......

As a mother, she raised five children who became my beloved aunts, uncles, and mother. As a grandmother she was always there for us (and we are quite the crew!) taking us on trips (and pulling over to read every sign with grandpa) cooking (family dinners with as many as we could collect as often as we could), or just reading with grandpa (love you both, best beloved). I feel blessed that she was able to meet her great granddaughters and grandsons, and especially for the special relationship she had with my daughter Anya. She and Anya always had something to say to each other, and since her death Anya knows, as I hope we all do, that she is out of pain and happy and will always be there for us. Love you GG, you are in our hearts.

Lou Russ was an amazing women. Her smile could light up any room. She gave the world's best hugs. I was Blessed to have her as my Mom and told her that everyday when I became wise enough to say it. She is in a better place now and reunited with my Dad, Dan Russ. There is a hole in my heart which time will fill in as I hold tight to the memories of this great lady.
