I know Jane Russel died and went to be with Jesus. I am a born-again Christian SINGING Evangelist. I met Jane's brother in about 1972, and was in the Russell home with Jane's pictures on the living room wall. I recorded a song for our nation and our dear Jesus: in Hollywood in 1986. The song: "America, It's Surely Time to Pray". Based on 2nd Chronicles 7:14.
Get in touch with me: call me at: 208/342-4889. We must win as many to Jesus as we can for the Rapture is definitely very close to happening!
I was saved in the Army on 11/01/64: served in Korea 1965: have enjoyed my life with Jesus.
I pray God's best for you! Please call me.

I love you Janie. And I miss you,so much.


When Jane was on TV urging gals to wear a Cross Your Heart Bra, she sounded like she was pushing a women`s religious program. Cross your heart and hope to buy.
