Russell May rest, but still speaks from his labor’s of love around the country. The skills that he taught are still are still in action in the lives of all his builders. Russell’s construction talent will be in high demand in paradise where we will be so thrilled to greet him. Isaiah 65:21 We will be seeking his wise advice on transforming this earth into a paradise ,as was originally intended. Our hearts will be mended when we see that smiling face motivating us to follow his beautiful example. John 5:28,29 assures us of the miracle of the resurrection. When Jesus said, COME OUT , after 4 days of being in the grave, Lazarus came out to be reunited with his family. When Jesus calls ,Russell, he will answer, Job 14:14 To be comforted please read or listen to: “Enjoy Life Forever”, JW.org Love & Prayers, Sandy Wirfs
