Clarke & Bug, So sorry to hear about Weirdo(Stin). I will always remember the first time I met him at a party at you apt. on 14th street across from the Filmore.

Russ was a kind soul, as I recall from high school. In addition, didn't he have wonderful artistic abilities? I send sincere condolences.

Dear Clarke, So sad to learn of your brother's passing--especially at such a young age. He looks a lot like you, too. Dave says you all went hunting together a few times upstate, and Ted sends you his best wishes, as well.

Dear Clarke and Doug, So very sorry to hear of Russ' passing....the pain of losing a sibling is immense. I'm sure Anne has welcomed him with open arms and they're both smiling down upon you until you meet again. My condolences to you and your family. Marsha (Thomas) Delia

Erpie, Rusty, Russ, Woid, Stin, my memories of him are deep as are those of his friends and family who have known and loved him by each of those names. It's a sad occasion and may he rest in peace.

I'm so sorry to learn of this loss to our community. Another good man, another servant taken Home so soon, it seems. How the Divine Economy is maintained makes little sense to the questioning mind and nowadays I just ask for acceptance, especially when it hurts the most. I pray for our friend who's gone Home, and for all he's left behind. Peace to all.
