I knew Juliet for almost as long as I've been alive. She was my friend, Victor Damiani's cousin. And she was Kate Martelli's cousin, too. She was every bit as beautiful as her pictures, probably even more so. It was a great day when she and Edward T. Russell discovered each other and the romance brought them to a decades' long marriage. For many years, the Russells and I ate lunch together most Fridays at the Wentletrap Restaurant. Juliet and I probably bored Mr. Russell to death with our reminisces about old Galveston, and with her addition of Christie Mitchell quotes. I loved Juliet and I love Mr. Russell. I'm sorry that couple's earthly life together has ended.

Mrs. Russell was a very kind, warm hearted woman. She always had a smile that would warm your heart. Over the many years I had the privilege to talk and visit with the Russell’s I was blessed to see the unconditional lover Mr. and Mrs. Russell had for each other. Many times Mrs. Russell sat and spoke with my children during times I worked with Mr. Russell maintaining their home. After they would speak of the laughter they shared. Mrs. Russell never had children of her own; I shared my children with her and everyone had a great time. I will sincerely miss talking to Mrs. Russell, to me she was more then and always will be more than just a friend. She will always be in my heart and prayers as I loved her very much.
