    What a character Russ was! I enjoyed working with Russ so much while at Charles Mill. Sharing an office with Russ during those years was nothing but comical! He always had the coffee on and a joke or funny story for me. Russ made even a bad day a hoot! No matter what mood you may have been in or how busy my schedule kept me his laughter and humor made my day easier. Russ loved you all and couldn’t talk about you enough. Millie and family keep his laughter and sense of humor close to your heart right now as move through this difficult time.

    With love and sympathy,
    Sherri

    Millie,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Russ was a good friend as well as a great co-worker. There was many a night when I was a Ranger at Charles Mill that I looked forward after working all night to seeing Russ’s smiling face in the maintenance building making coffee, first thing in the morning.
    I know he loved you and everybody in the park knew it. He will be greatly missed.
    Condolences to you and your family and if you need anything, please do not hesitate to call.

    Love ya,

    Jim and Debbie Houser

    Russ Page was not only a great co-worker, but an even greater friend to everyone that knew him. My wife and I had the priveledge of knowing Russ and Millie at Charles Mill and I had the opportunity of working with and along side of Russ for many years. As a Ranger I always looked forward to meeting Russ at the end of my midnight shift and hearing his hunting stories over a cup of coffee. He will be greatly missed.

    Love and condolences, Jim and Debbie Houser
