Today I heard that Mr Russell left this world last night just after midnight.
He and Phil Harris had the greatest impact on my days at Groveton.
I still fondly remember him and his classes. Some of the lessons that I learned and the memories that I carry with me still have an influence on me.
In fact, just last night I was telling a story about a creative writing assignment from his class in 11th Grade (80-81)
His classes were not only educational, but very enjoyable.
While I am saddened by the news - I am extremely glad that I can say that I knew him.
Thank you Paulie, you will never be forgotten.
