We are very sad to hear the news about Russell. I shared countless hours both at Nealdow ave and Maine Ave as well as everywhere in between. So many great times. Who can forget driving in the 62 blue Chevy with stick shift on the column? Or playing football outside in the street using Mary Ellen as a blocker? When I heard tonight, so many memories came back. I am unable to attend Mass. Liz and will keep Russell and his family are in our thoughts and prayers

My deepest sympathy to the Dronne family and friends. I do not know you personally but I wanted to share something from the Holy Scriptures that I find very comforting. It is the resurrection guarantee Jesus gives at John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29. My prayers are with you that as you read and meditate on this promise, it will bring you comfort and peace.

Russ was a great brother-inlaw, was always willing to help you any way he could. I remember when I was made head soccer coach for Sarah's soccer team. Russ came over with a bag of balls, cones, and DVD's on soccer to help me. You'll always be in my thoughts.
