Dear Susan, I’m not sure if you remember me but we rode to OCC School of cosmetology together along with Libbie Oaks. I am very sorry to learn of the passing of your father and I wanted to pass along my condolences. I see that your father was the sister to Treva Russell. Treva was my dear sweet lunch lady at Lincoln elementary school and I loved her dearly if your father was half as wonderful as she was, he must’ve been one fantastic individual. You have my sympathies during this very difficult time. Gods blessings to you and your family!
