    Dear Ross’ family,

    I was so saddened to hear of Ross’ passing. I knew Ross years ago. He was so nice and a pleasure to be around. He will surely be missed and I know that Heaven has been blessed even more with him there. My thoughts are with you all…

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family at this sad moment. I have fond memories of Ross at the family gatherings and also being able to see him from time to time at Herter’s.

    Wish we could have been there.

    God Bless You All.
