Mrs. Russell was the kindest woman to me. I remember her crossing the school kids and always greeting us and knowing our name. She walked me home when i was sick and she even walked my brother John home as a little kid when he got out and wanted to go to school. I made her cookies for the holidays. I will always look back fondly and think of her. Rest in Peace.
