I met Russ when I worked for Labor Relations at the Post Office on William Street for 26 years of my 30 year career. It was 1986 and I was new to Labor Relations, and Russ was the President of Branch #3 of the NALC. From Day One when I called him for an explanation of the Union's position on a contract or disciplinary issue, Russ treated me with respect and friendship, and he always gave me a thorough explanation of the Union's position in a cordial and respectful way. Even though I was "Management", I would like to think we became friends. He was a gentleman in every way, and I hope his family is proud of the man he was. I am sure they are and I just want you to know how much I respected and liked Russ.
To the Barbera family, I offer my sincere condolences. The loss of a loved one in death is a crushing blow that leaves our hearts broken and scarred. During such grievous times, Psalms 147:3 assures us that God "heals the brokenhearted" and "binds up their wounds". May you find healing in the comforting words He has promised at Isaiah 25:8.-jw.org
