Kathi Russell

Today we buried my good friend, spiritual advisor, boss, and wonderful human being. She died on Tuesday of this week leaving behind 3 wonderful kids and an awesome husband of 35 years. Her fight with cervical cancer was amazing and her spirit never faltered and neither did her faith in God for even a minute.

Kathi made me want to be a Christian when my mouth was full of the bitter taste of the hypocritical world of Christianity. She showed us not just the scriptures teaching us how to have a servants heart, but walked the walk as well. She walked closer to God than ANYONE that I have ever known. She never said anything negative and refused to allow anyone to talk that way. She always saw the positive and I am so priviliged to have known her.

Please lift up the Russell family this week and mine as well. We are quite upset by this but know that she is where she is needed most. Kelsey and Jackson are not handling this very well from afar, please lift them up as well.
