    I did not know Russ personally, as he graduated the May before I got to Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School, but his sister Emily was a year ahead of me and I got to know her and his dad is one of my professors here at Martin Luther College.
    I just wanted to ask that you keep his family and friends in your prayers.

    Just as an update for you. I don't want anyone to get any misconceptions about Russell. He was not driving drunk, he was not driving in any dangerous way. However, when he was young he had epilipsy, and it would only strike him rarely in his adult years. His family said that usually he could feel them, but this time turned out he did not feel it coming on until it was too late... I just wanted to update that so no one got bad impressions

    I was thinking asleep at the wheel myself.

    Do they really know he had a seizure, or are they guessing because he had no alcohol in his system?

    I've been seizure free for over 30 years, but I still consider myself to have epilepsy.

    It is probably good to still consider yourself to have it. Relapses are always possible. Which is why I worry a lot about my sister (who has been seizure free for 9 or 10 years now) because she is now 17 and driving and all that stuff.. but for him, he's had relapses in his adult life. I'm not sure what kind of seizures he would get either. Because any one of them could have caused the crash. There are so many questions. But I just wanted to make sure that his name stayed clear.
