To the Corning family on behalf of the Marv and Sue Koerner family, Although we could not be with you today, you have been in our hearts and prayers.

Hope your day together as a family is somehow peaceful and rewarding. Love from all of us.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I have great memories of Russ though not recent but really good ones. He and Marilyn and Karen and I went on 3 trips in 1977 and 1978. He had a way of keeping each trip fun and very humorous. I remember thinking he was so much funnier than Johnny Carson. He helped make these trips great! He will be missed.

Russ was my father, and he will be missed greatly every day for the rest of my life. I loved him dearly, and no matter how you try, you can never prepare yourself for the loss of a parent. So today, Father's Day, is especially sad. He was a great Dad.
