The Most Wonderful Daddy!!

Leonard "Guff" Russell
July 13, 1924 to March 14, 2004

Today is the fourth year anniversary of my dad's passing. He was a wonderful Dad!! A WWII veteran who worked with all veterans in our community helping them get pensions and to work through their demons. He was a wonderful grandfather whose grandkids could do no wrong!! He taught my siblings and I to work hard, dream, respect others, stand up for our flag and country, support our soldiers and to be honest!! I still am very lonely for my dad - It is a loneliness that sometimes overtakes my heart!!
