Memories & Candles
I am so sorry that Russ had ALS. I am sorry that his wife had to go through it with him. I never stopped caring about him and hoping that he found happiness. Rest in Peace Russ.

I was married to Russ from 1963 till 1978, when he took what he thought was 1/2 of the household things and moved into an apartment that he kept secret and used a fake name.
