Our Friend Russell Williams succumbed to his three (3) year battle with ALS on the 29th of March.
I include an obituary for Russell because it includes a link to support the University of Florida ALS research program.
Russell was an avid tennis player, as he was by all accounts quite good. We have forty (40) of his sixty (60) or so Babolat Pure Control racquets that he loved so much. Russell kept the racquets in top shape, so he would never consider switching!
Sophie, Russells’ daughter, is quite an accomplished tennis player and will be going to UF, where she has signed to play tennis!
Goodbye, our friend!
Barbara planted a Reed Begonia for Russell. If you are near The Leu Botanical Garden in Orlando you can find Russell’s begonia in the White Garden.
“I planted a white reed begonia in the White Garden. We will watch it grow and flower and think of all of you.”
