Dear Armetta Family;
I was excited to get my quarterly update from STA only to be so shocked at the loss of one of my classmates class of '77. Ross was a great guy and would help you with anything. I know how much he will be missed in your daily lives however he lives on in your heart every minute. Look to Jesus Christ for comfort during this tough time, he will see you thru it. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

You are such an influentail part in my life. I dont think that I would be the person I am today if it were not for the things that you taught me. You expected alot from me and Michael and we tried our hardest to make you proud. I hope we succeeded. I am so happy that God brought you to live with me this past year. I think it brought us alot closer even under the circumstances. There will never be someone like you to walk this earth again, you are truely a one of a kind, and anyone who was lucky enough to be part of your life should feel blessed. I love you with all of my heart and I miss you sooooo much. Please give me the strength to get though this because I cant see not having you here with me. Please watch over us and let us know your there once in a while. You will forever be in my heart and I will make sure my future children know what a wonderful person you are, and how much you mean to me. I love you Daddy. Farewell for now.

Dear Armetta Family, words can not begin to describe our heartfelt sorrow for the loss of such a good man. I had to honor to have worked with Ross for a time. You never had to wonder what he was thinking or if what he had said was truth. He told you like it was good or bad. I have the upmost respect for him as a boss and as a friend. May he be at rest and have peace with our Father in heaven. May God grant you and your family comfort in knowing he is in a better place now and we will see him again.

To the Armetta family..Ross was indeed a great man and was a blast to work for. He expected us all to work as hard as he did. He praised you when you did well and let you know when you fell short. He kept it real..and he will be missed. My family will pray for peace in your hearts during this time. May Ross rest in peace.
