Hello, Been here to visit alot. Im sure by now you've met my brother. I miss him so much. I guess even many many years does'nt heal that pain. I think about your family everyday, Your Mom and Dad have a perminant place is my heart Always. Your Sisters heart is the heart of a precious person that lost her baby brother... thats the heart I was given to endure the rest of my life also..... Okay... enough about the sad stuff. From what we all know now, Heaven just got a bit louder with all the 6 and 7 year olds running around. Hope you and my brother are enjoying them.

I got a chill today that made me shiver. I realized the chill outside was pushing a chill inside me with the memory of that ugly day you were taken away. But I pushed it away with memories of a sweet child. One of my favorites... you were 12 and your mom and dad brought you over to our house. Im thinking to myself... poor kid stuck all day with 4 boring adults. We put a fishing pole in your hand and we all went back to the lake. Oh my gosh!!! I didnt think a 12 year old could share that many smiles in a single day. No other kids to play with... Just us boring big people. I was so glad to be wrong. Running around that lake to show us each and every fish you caught!!! Oh and... I dont let myself think of that day as you being "taken away'' anymore...I try to think of it as you were "taken home". But I still feel angry... dont know if that will ever go away........

I dont know what to say.... I just know I come here to visit alot to spend some time thinking about the whole family.... that just doesnt seem whole anymore. I know as the people here on Earth we are impatient and want things to make sence... and one day it all will. Im sure you look at all of us with that big smile of yours.... because you "know" all the things that we are not allowed to know until we come home. You know there are tears here... but not where you are. You know the time in this world is so short, and the end of this chapter....will start a new chapter.... The chapter that never ends, The chapter that keeps us all together, filled with love, Forever and Ever.

Russell I miss you so much I wish you were here right now. I can't believe your gone. I have known you since elementary school. I remeber when we had first period together and you would go to get breakfeast and wouldn't come back for like 20 minutes. The teacher would be like where have you been. You said I was just walking around. Or like the times we would talk about trucks and tracktors. Miss those days and will never forget them. I miss you..

 

Mickey posted on 6/20/12

Fathers Day has come and gone. Thought alot about Russ and his Dad... The whole family. All 4 of you. See the picture on this page, the big smile, and you make me smile inside. Then go and look at the picture his sister posted. Still have the tears. But thats just our human shell. Then remember we will all get to enjoy the hugs and smiles again. The tears go away.... just have to remember for now.... enjoy you again someday.

 

Mickey posted on 5/14/12

Mothers Day is almost over. Spent alot of the day thinking about Jeannie. I loved the pic Crystal put on face book of her mom and dad. Always thinking about the family. I Love You All. Russ...keep smiling on us all, because we cant feel it.

Mickey Bolaney posted on 4/21/12

Thinking about You all the time Russ. Thinking about Jeannie, Rusty and Crystal. Wondering when the tears wil stop. Yet knowing these tears are just human, and knowing there are no tears in Heaven. I have to shift my thoughts to the day Heather and I were in line with you and your mom at Wal-Mart. Your bright smile, and in a hurry to get outta there. That day... that thought makes me smile, Thank-You for that gift.

 

Mickey posted on 4/7/12

Hello Rusty Jeannie and Crystal. Thoughts of you all and Russ are on my mind everyday. The Red Ribbons around town are looking a little tattered and fadded... so I got some new ones to replace some of the old ones. Heather and I are going out next week to do this because... The thoughts of Russ are still so vibrant, his smile still so fresh... we want his ribbons to be that way too. So when you see the new bright red ribbons... Know the thoughts of all of you are always with us... everyday. I Love you all,

Jeannie, Don't know if you remember me or not. You babysitted my children when we lived in Lake Aquilla. I knew your Mom really well and played ball with your step father. Did not know your son but I am so sorry for your loss. I know what it is like to lose a child so young. My thoughts will be with you and your family. God bless....With thoughts and love , Chuck Fay

Hello and back again to visit with Russell. The service was beautiful. The pictures say so very much. His life, the love and the smiles. I visit here to read the beautiful things written. Mom, Dad and Sister... you put those smiles on his face. Imagine the smiles when you meet again.

 

Marsha Kirk posted on 3/8/12

Word cannot express the deep sympathy I feel for you and your family. Although I do not know you or any of the families, I feel an odd connection. Maybe it's because I have a son the same age...maybe because I'm a parent and can empathize the pain of another parent's loss. I have shed a river of tears & have said a book full of prayers since that horrible day. I even came to Chardon, stood, cried and prayed, a silent stranger. February 27th was my mother's birthday. Now and forever more that date will serve as a fatefull reminder to me of what tragedy occurred. Russell, Danny & Dimetruis will now always & forever be in my heart. I pray you and all the families find strength in family, friends, community and beyond. May your hearts always be filled with fond memories of your loved ones. God Bless you all!!!

We offer our sincere sympathy for the loss of your son. We also lost a son to an accidental gunshot by his best friend. It will be 9 years next month since welost him and we still miss him and think about him every day. We got through with God's help. We also helped to form a grief recovery group with another couple who lost two sons. We had no professionals, just a group of parents who loved and missed their children. We would just get together once a week to talk, and we had each other's phone numbers so we could talk to someone whenever we needed to. If you would like to contact us, my husband talked to Bob Palmentor, and he has our phone number. Our thoughjt and prayers are with you.Ray & Cathy TuckerAlliance, Ohio

Russell you were more then a friend to me. You were someone I looked up to and you knew how to make people laugh even when they are having a bad day. i remember seeing you right before it happened and i wish i would of known what was coming so i could get you, Danny and D out of there. That day was a terrible day and i just wish it could just go back and not haapen. Its like a terrible nightmare that no one can wake up from. Its not the same without you. Youve made a difference in my life and in a lot of others. I love you and we all miss you!

Mickey posted on 3/6/12

I come to this page every night to spend a little time with Russell. Going through the pictures, reading the moments everyone is sharing. My first few visits here the emotions and tears were always to the point where I couldnt leave a memory. I would just visit everyones thoughts and prayers, then go to bed. Tonight I would like to extend a strong hug to Rusty Jeannie and Crystal. I just had to remember that Russell is in a place we cant even imagine the peace and love of. I imagine him looking at all of us, and wanting to say " Im here with all of our loved ones, We will all be together again one day. I may not have your arms around me today, but I have many arms around me right now." It's so confusing the physical tears and pain our bodies feel at times like this, when we know that beyond this world, is a undescribable place that is all good and gentle. Our simple minds let us cry... but our soul knows where home is... and we will all be together again with no tears.pdvs7

My deepest sympathys to the King Family my heart aches for you. I have two son's Brian and Mark who both knew Russell and spent fun times with him fishing and hanging out. I met Russell one time last summer. Russell came home with my son Mark and Russell spent the night at our house. All I can picture is him standing in our doorway when my son Mark introduced him to me "Hi Mom, this is my friend Russell". Russell's face light up with a charming smile and said "Hi Mrs Radebaugh, it is nice to meet you." He spent the night and in the morning when he departed he was sure to thank me for allowing him to spend the night. What a fine, polite, young man you raised. I will never forget him, he was one of those kids that just made such a wonderful impression. Please know the boys have nothing but great things to say and wonderful memories of Russell. Russell will live on in the lives he saved by his generous organ donations. Mr & Mrs KIng, please know that we pray for you, your family, Russell and all the children affected by this senseless tragedy. God Bless you.

Rusty and Jeannie,There truly are no words that we can use to express our deep sadness for the loss of Russell. You should be very proud of the wonderful young man you raised, his beautiful smile and the twinkle of his eyes will forever be a comforting memory we have of him. We cared very deeply for him as you both know. I know this doesn't help much, but you donating his organs to eight others is keeping a part of him alive and with you. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during the most horrible event you will ever have to face. I hope in time, that your pain can in some way be eased. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything.

Kimberly Stewart posted on 3/3/12

You have brought life out of this tragedy -- you are an inspiration to us all. There were eight words in Russ' obituary that made me catch my breath, "including a small child" and "his heart still beats". We too, have a 17 year old son and i cannot even begin to comprehend your pain and loss -- my mind will only go so far and then it shuts off, not allowing that pain into my heart. May it bring some small comfort to you knowing that, while Russ has helped so many others live, his essence remains in your heart forever. To speak in biblical terms, Russ finished his race very early in his lifetime but that also means that he received his reward very early also. He is now where we all aspire to be and he will never feel pain again. That being said, i am still very, very sorry for your loss.In Christ, Kim

I did not know your son but I wanted to share this story that was given to me 29 years ago when I lost my little brother on his 13th birthday in our house fire....my thoughts and prayers go out to you all ....I hope he will always be your Dragonfly ..........Waterbugs and Dragonflies by Doris Stickney......................................... Waterbugs and Dragonflies : Explaining Death to Young Children"Down below the surface of a quiet pond lived a little colony of water bugs. They were a happy colony, living far away from the sun. For many months they werevery busy, scurrying over the soft mud on the bottom of the pond. They did notice that every once in awhile one of their colony seemed to lose interest in goingabout. Clinging to the stem of a pond lily it gradually moved out of sight and was seen no more."Look!" said one of the water bugs to another. "One of our colony is climbing up the lily stalk. Where do you think she is going?" Up, up, up it slowly went....Evenas they watched, the water bug disappeared from sight. Its friends waited and waited but it didn't return..."That's funny!" said one water bug to another. "Wasn't she happy here?" asked a second... "Where do you suppose she went?" wondered a third.No one had an answer. They were greatly puzzled. Finally one of the water bugs, a leader in the colony, gathered its friends together. "I have an idea". The next oneof us who climbs up the lily stalk must promise to come back and tell us where he or she went and why.""We promise", they said solemnly.One spring day, not long after, the very water bug who had suggested the plan found himself climbing up the lily stalk. Up, up, up, he went. Before he knew whatwas happening, he had broke through the surface of the water and fallen onto the broad, green lily pad above.When he awoke, he looked about with surprise. He couldn't believe what he saw. A startling change had come to his old body. His movement revealed four silverwings and a long tail. Even as he struggled, he felt an impulse to move his wings...The warmth of the sun soon dried the moisture from the new body. He moved hiswings again and suddenly found himself up above the water. He had become a dragonfly!!Swooping and dipping in great curves, he flew through the air. He felt exhilarated in the new atmosphere. By and by the new dragonfly lighted happily on a lily pad torest. Then it was that he chanced to look below to the bottom of the pond. Why, he was right above his old friends, the water bugs! There they were scurryingaround, just as he had been doing some time before.The dragonfly remembered the promise: "The next one of us who climbs up the lily stalk will come back and tell where he or she went and why." Without thinking,the dragonfly darted down. Suddenly he hit the surface of the water and bounced away. Now that he was a dragonfly, he could no longer go into the water..."I can't return!" he said in dismay. "At least, I tried. But I can't keep my promise. Even if I could go back, not one of the water bugs would know me in my newbody. I guess I'll just have to wait until they become dragonflies too. Then they'll understand what has happened to me, and where I went."And the dragonfly winged off happily into its wonderful new world of sun and air.......

A Caring Mother posted on 3/3/12

WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME When Tomorrow Starts without me, and I’m not there to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you and each time that you think of me I know you’ll miss me too, but when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand and said my place was ready in heaven far above and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye for all my life I’d always thought I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for so much yet to do, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad. I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be for emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow But when I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne he said “this is eternity and all I’ve promised you” Today for life on earth is past but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow but today will always last and since each day’s the same day there’s no longing for the past but you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true, though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free so won’t you take my hand and share my life with me?So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart for every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart. Angels don’t always have wings Author Unknown

To the family of Russell King, I cannot imagine what you have gone through. You had to make a decision for Russell about donating his organs. You must have concluded that was what he would have wanted, to save so many lives, including a child - hopefully knowing that you have spared another mother your pain is helping to comfort you. I am part of a donor family too. Knowing the recipients live on does help over time. Especially since Russell was able to save the life of a small child. That must make him very happy. Know that everyone is thinking of you all at this difficult time, and going forward.

For the parents of Danny, Russell and DemetriusAs a parent my heart aches for you and your family. Just the thought of what you’re going through seems unbearable. I’m sure what I’ve written below doesn’t begin to explain what you’re feeling, but the words moved me, as if I had a little bit of understanding.One More Minute... One moment in time, is all that it tookWhen the world around me suddenly shookAn hour or a minute is all it would takeTo change what had happened shortly after he’d wakeIf only he stayed home or was tardy that day,Dropped a pen on the floor, and was out of the wayIf I hugged him longer or asked him to stayIf I dropped to my knees and started to prayOne minute with him was a life filled with loveI’m not ready to accept that he’s in heaven aboveThe pain and the sorrow is more than I knewThat a parent like me could ever go throughDear God hold my baby and please hold him tight; andGive me the courage and strength to get through this nightBy Laura Hegedus, Eastlake OH

Death is Nothing At All Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was. There is absolute unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you. For an interval. Somewhere. Very near. Just around the corner. All is well. Funeral Death Poem by Henry Scott Holland ~ 1847-1918 Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral ~ London.

Kathy Walker posted on 3/2/12

Dear King Family,There is nothing that I can say to remove the wrenching pain of Russell's senseless passing. He is described as one who enjoyed nature, animals and life in general. It is not surprising then, that has chosen the gift of life by donating his organs. His passing has united a world of people who are suffering his loss by embracing you. Having had a near-death experience, I'd like to share that he must have had one too - better than mine. He found himself in a place where the weight of the world was lifted, felt no pain, gloried in a most exquisite and all-encompasing sense of peace, love and the freeing absence of the contraints of time and place. That is where my experience ended as I reluctantly returned to this physical world. I selfishly yearned to remain in this place that had bathed me with light and the promise of the realm of grace. My heart reaches out to you during this awful tansitional time.

We will ALWAYS remember Russell. He was such a sweet and funny kid. Lots of memories..Kalahari, Laser Tag, Elementary School Concerts. I remember taking Emory and Russell midnight bowling, we went to Denny's afterward, both boys were falling asleep in their food. One day he decided he was fascinated with magnets. Russell went all around my house sticking magnets to things to see if they were metal. Emory and Russell were so much alike and the best of friends. We ALWAYS enjoyed having Russell over for the weekend. May he rest in peace now. Thoughts and prayers are with the King family at this tragic time.

There are never enough words to say how sorry we all are for this very tragic event and the outcome that it had. I cant say i know what you are feeling because i dont and i wont pretend to. However may god bless you and wrap his loving arms around your family. Know that your son is your guardian angel and he will always protect you. Please hold all of the memories close to your heart, for noone can take them away. Grieve for as long as you need to, if its for the rest of your life, then so be it. People will tell you that it will get better as time goes by and the hurt will diminish, that doesnt always happen and people need to understand that. You all are in my prayers today, tomorrow and always. God Bless you all, Tracey Strong.

Parents, family and friends, My Prayers and my heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. May you heal as time goes by.I was given this poem when my husband passed away in 2009, I always keep this poem in mind and it does help. May you find Peace in knowing that one day you will reunite with your loved one. Russell King, Jr May you Rest In Peace with the Lord.MY DEAREST FRIENDS AND FAMILYTo My dearest friends and family, something I would like to say... but first of all to let you know, I have arrived okay. I am writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.Here, there's no more tears of sadness, here is just eternal love.Please do not be unhappy just because I am out of sight. Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and he said," I welcome you."It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.As far as your dearest family they'll be here later on.I need you here badly; you're part of my plan. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores but to- flight. God and I are close to you....in the middle of the night.When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.I wish I could tell you all that god has planned. But if I were to tell you, you would not understand. But one thing is for certain, through my life on earth is over. I am closer to you now, then I ever was before.There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills climb, but together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too.... that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.If you can help someone who is in sorrow and pain,then you can say to God at night......."My day was not in vain." And now I am contented.....that my life has been worthwhile, knowing as I passes along the way, I made somebody smile.So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,just lend a hand and pick him up, as on your way to go. When you are walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.And when it's time for you to go.....from that body to be free, remember you're not going......you're coming here with me.
