I was so saddened to find out about Ross' passing. We were friends while we lived at the Grand Canyon. He was such a good a friend and even though we lost touch over the years, I never stopped thinking about him. I was happy to reconnect once again through Facebook.
Condolences to his family, he will be truly missed.

Thank you Ross for the friendship throughout the years. It's always hard to say goodbye, but now you are at peace. During these times, we ask that when you reach those gates of God that you remember us down here. This angel now rest high up in the mountains. May the Goben family find serenity through God's speed with love.
