“Russell was a good friend of mine in Ukiah and Redwood Valley before we went to Guyana. He went on some of the Advanced Crew trips I went on to hand out flyers before the bus tour and Jim's healing services around the country. He was a hard worker and had a great sense of humor. It was fun doing any job with him. He also lived in one of the same communes I lived in and worked on some of the same jobs. He was a friendly, calm, and thoughtful friend who was always kind to everyone. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
