In loving memory of

George Russell

10/26/1943-11/20/2011

Dad,

A year ago today I lost my best friend.

For some strange reason I thought you would be there until MY end.

I miss your wisdom, courage and your strength,

And the fact that you would do anything for me no matter what the length.

I even miss your honest criticism of my choices, decisions ¦

I miss your sarcasm.

I try not to be sad because I know you wouldn't want me to.

But it's kind of hard at times because I can't see or talk to you.

But I do see you, Dad, every day and every night.

Whether it's when I close my eyes to sleep or open them for the morning light.

I see you in my dreams; I honor you in my life.

I miss you, Dad.

Without you, Dad, life will never be the same.

Love Forever, Daughter of the Brain.
