To The Family Of Russell Sadusky:You have my sincere condolences during this sad occasion. The one and only true living God, who has created all things as we consider reading Psalms 83:18, in the Holy Bible. The Sovereign Lord Jehovah is the most high over the entire Universe! He deserves Exclusive Devotion from all of mankind and Sacred Service to him, and to him alone.

The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a human can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Even the gentelest terms can do little to soften the intense sadness that is often felt by those who have lost a loved one.

I Would like to share a Scripture with you from the Holy Bible at Psalms 90:10-" The span of our life is 70 years,Or 80 if one is especially strong. But they are filled with trouble and sorrow; They quickly pass by, and away we fly."

I invite you to for accurate knowledge of the Holy Bible and more Bible Truths!
