Russell! Because I've lived knowing you through most of these phases of your life, I can attest they express your personality perfectly! Fish, tutus, naps and all! Wonderful post: I smiled when I read it and I'm still smiling now. Thank you.

I absolutely loved seeing your photos and reading your memories! Many made me smile, too. The classics studies costumes! So many great memories to share. My partner James has been disabled for ten years now, and we have both learned to enjoy each day for what it is, and especially our routine together. Since his stroke, I have become pretty committed to health, working out, and finding ways I can help him. But the most important thing I’ve realized is how much I cherish my friends and family. I’m so glad you pointed me to your newsletter. 💕

What a wonderful idea! I may start a similar folder.

Also, Teddy looks to have been a super sweet dog. I have a liturgy from a local author that I share with families who are grieving the loss of a pet. I know it has been 6 months but if your family (or just you) want more words for the loss, here are some.
