We will all miss Russell. He showed his love through acts of support and concern; we looked forward to his mouth melting BBQ and other fixings at our family reunions. He was there in the good and not so good times with that contagious smile of love and friendship. He was also willing to share his knowledge. We loved him so much! O, give thanks unto the Lord for a life well spent.

One or two days before his passing, my mother and I had talked about the great servants Mr. Russell and Mrs. Leitha were. Together, they were passionate about spreading God's love by helping others and improving their community, the county of Sampson, and surrounding areas. Felicia, you have taken the same approach by growing a business that is built on God's love. Thinking of you, your mother, and the rest of the family during this time and the days ahead.
