Russ, I have just learned of your loss. It has been some time since I last saw you after enjoying a productive professional relationship with you in your role of trustee. Many fond memories in that regard, knowing how well Margaret supported you in your efforts. In offering my condolences to you at this time, I also wish you well in the coming days, and years. Stay well! Respectfully, wayne weaver Goderich
