Ornament of the day - Bert

I made this ornament as a memorial to my dear friend Russell Groff, who died from complications from the AIDS virus in 2002. Russell and I went to college together, and he was one of the most joyful, brave, and loving people I have known. We studied theater together at Maryville College, and his Bert doll was hidden on stage for all of our shows. I love to remember him each year when I take out this ornament.
