Thank you
To all who
Were there with love
When no one else was
–Or would have been
Had you known me then.



About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

  2. I agree with Kristi! Too few remember the times when others were there for them when it becomes their turn to be there for others.

    My husband has stuck with me when life got rough – maybe I owe him a kiss? 🙂

      He sounds like a good man to me. Yes, it sounds like a great time to give to him a big, passionate kiss that unmistakably says without words “I love you” and “Thank you”. ;-D!
