Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. This site will be maintained by Russ's Sister, Angie Ford-Green. If you have any questions about Russ's condition or progress, she will be glad to offer whatever information she can on his behalf. Above all please PRAY according to God's leading, and as we wait for His plan to unfold we know that "with God NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!"
UPDATE! On Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at approx. 2:40 pm Russ headed off to Heaven. Though we will all miss him everyday until we are together again, our life with Russ has been FILLED with love, laughter (he loved to joke around and made everyone LOL) and the presence of the LORD in all of our days and most obviously these past few months, as Russ was suffering intensely because of prostate cancer that had moved aggressively into his bones and brain. The months of suffering have made it possible for his family and friends to let him go, because none of us want to be so selfish as to want him to be here, when he was in so much pain, was bedridden and was in agony. Thank you God for this light in our lives, for his humility, courage and genuine concern for others more than for himself. He is my HERO, he is my BROTHER, our Mom's SON, our son's UNCLE and everyone's Best Friend. Thank you all for following the journal entries and for your love and your encouraging words of comfort, hope and peace. and mostly for your prayers! "It is finished" and Russ made it HOME in time to celebrate Easter in Heaven, but then that's part of what goes on there consistently!! We LOVE you, Russ - - see you soon!!!
