Today is a day that all of us come together to remember a special person, someone who changed all of our lives by simply being the oneself. You are still making an impact my friend and you are still so loved. You will NEVER be forgotten and you will ALWAYS be loved. We will see you again, and that moment will be so awesome. Gone but still remembered while we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
It still seems like it was just yesterday that me, you and your brothers were all having nerf sword fights in the upstairs room with music blaring. I miss those times and I miss you every day and wish you were still here, even if that is greedy ha-ha. You were a brother to me and I will always cherish the times that we spent together and the inside jokes that no one but us two knew. I can’t wait to see you again and joke around like we always did. Love you and see you soon Russell.
It’s been one year since we’ve lost a good friend, inspiration, and role model. Today I pray for comfort and understanding for everyone who has been touched by Russell O’Neal. Let us never forget the love he shared with us and the faith he took with him to heaven. We love you Russell, save a place for us!
“Cling to the hope you have in Jesus Christ. He’ll get you through. Cling to your family, cling to your friends. Love as much as you can while you can. And do everything you can for the Lord.” ~Russell O’Neal A year ago yesterday (Feb. 4th) Heaven received a hero…Russell, I miss you so much and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you! I wear my “Miracle for Russell” bracelet all the time and because of that, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing your testimony with numerous people!…You taught me to stay strong, never give up and cling to the hope…Save a place for me. ❤
Russell has been on my mind all day. He impacted so many lives and I know we all miss him terribly. Please continue to pray for his family, it’s been a hard day for me I can’t imagine how hard today has been for Debbie and Jeff. Everyone please remember what Russell said in his testimony. “Cling to the hope you have in Jesus Christ, he will bring you through, cling to your family, cling to your friends, love all you can while you can and do everything for The Lord”

Gone but never forgotten❤ “Cling to the hope you have in Jesus Christ, he will bring you though. Cling to you family, cling to your friends. Love as much as you can while you can and do everything for the Lord.”
A year ago today I and many others lost one of our biggest inspirations in this life. Not a day goes by where I don’t miss my best friend. I still feel anger and confusion every time this day crosses my mind. I love you and miss you buddy and can’t wait to see you again someday. Not only should we remember Russell today but we should remember his family as well. I pray that they can find comfort on such a day that words can’t even begin to describe.
A beautiful sunrise this morning only made think of Russell O’Neal. I can’t believe it has already been a year since our prom king got called home. I miss you Russell, save a place for me. ♥
Russell was a very good friend of mine. He made my days bright. When I was down he always knew exactly what I needed. Our freshman year of high school I sat behind him in class. I loved his skater hair. I always played with it lol this boy meant a lot to me. I was so proud of him and he encouraged me to follow God in every aspect of my life. He will be greatly missed
I first met Russell about 10 years ago, when Heather Jones invited me to church with her. I never knew him all that well, and we were all so young then that I don’t remember much specifically, but I remember his kind nature and smile. Years later, when Russell was in his final days of battling cancer, I heard his testimony on the internet. I did not know that I was in the middle of a hot pursuit- God was after my heart. Just days after I first heard his testimony, when I was sure things would go a different way, Russell passed away. At his funeral, his testimony was played again. In that moment, I could feel God gripping my heart. He wanted a relationship with me, and He told me where I could make that happen. I started going to my church, Revolution, and God continued to relentlessly pursue my heart in a way I never knew was possible. I have been in church my whole life, but I have never known God like Russell knew God, until God used him to rescue me. Call it what you like, but I’ll call it a miracle- I went 22 years(!) thinking I knew God, and I was wrong.
Russell O’Neal impacted my life in a way that I wouldn’t have known until he passed. I never really took in the fact that all throughout his battle with cancer he stayed optimistic and kept his faith. A person that can do that is the best role model anyone can have. His optimism helped me to overcome the sadness dwelling in my heart when he passed. Although I still think about him every night when I’m laying in bed I no longer ask why? I just lay there and look back on all the memories that he and I shared and thank God for blessing me with such an amazing person for my best friend. Russell gave an example of hope, strength, faith and courage, traits everyone should have. My heart is still heavy for you, Debbie, Wes, and Devin. I love all of you guys so much. I will continue to pray that I and you all will be as strong as Russ as life continues to go on.
Russell Grant O’Neal will forever be in my family’s heart. Russell showed me how I should be Faithful and strong no matter what I may face in life. When I think of him I see him saying Don’t lose Hope God is in control.. And his SMILE always amazing.
