To Mary and all of Russell's family,


I only got to know Russell for a short period while he was at Braemar but from the moment I met him it was clear to meet that he was a very kind generous person who loved life and his family very much. I am so glad I got to meet and know him.

Please accept our deepest condolences from myself and all staff at Braemar Retirement Centre
