Condolence & Memory Journal

I am only now on learning of the death of your son and my young mentor, RJ (Russ), of ypur recent passing. I always looked to you and Mr Rogers as role models and sources of interesting information and experiences that a young and curious Emporia, Kansan would not have otherwise had access to. I think my parents might think the same as you were more worldly than we were. Mr Rogers, David, Brian (and unfortunately now not RJ), I wish all good things for you. What a loss and now 2 of them. With love and great memories! Chad
