The Letter


February 16th, 2009

It is with terrible regret that we inform our readers that Akemi Russo, beloved model, wife and mother has passed away this afternoon. It is believed that Akemi took her own life, due to dealing with postpartum depression that dates back to the birth of her first daughter, Olivia. She continued to struggle with it through the birth of her son, Leo, and her newborn daughter, Emily.

Akemi leaves behind her three children and her husband, Anthony, who the world knew she loved very, very much.

Anthony departed his game vs. the Vancouver Canucks as soon as he was informed of the news.

We send the Russo family all the love and prayers we can possibly muster at this time.



oliviarussoo: They say it gets easier with time, but it seems to have only gotten harder living without you, Mama. I can still hear your laugh ringing through the hallways. Ten years. Ten years there's been an empty black hole in my heart. I wish I could've cured you. I love you, Mom. 永远的永远. (Forever and Always.)
