My thoughts and prayers for Frances and the entire Russell Family at this time. Who only knows all the many great things Johnny did for people over his lifetime that we will never know about. He had a passion for his family and children like no other. His eyes would sparkle at the sight of a child, especially babies. He was a man of kindness and generosity. At 38 years old, I lost my father and I was devastated. Little did Johnny and Norman Midget know how much it meant when they carried in a big tray of meat and goodies to the funeral home. My family was so appreciative and of course he always took care of the people he cared about. I would not have even thought of doing that generous act of kindness, but it meant all the world to me and my family. Johnny taught me a tremendous life lesson that no matter how busy you are, always take time to do good for others. The Russell family is huge and each one of them are so special to us all. Johnny your legacy will go on and on through your family as you have planted seeds of goodness amongst them. Thank you for making life so wonderful for all of us that have been touched by your love. I can just imagine God reaching out his hand to you Johnny and saying welcome home my good and faithful son. You will always be in our hearts Sharon Morgan & family
