My deepest sympathy to Mr. Ross' family. He was one of a kind. I worked through the County attorney's office with Mr. Ross for many, many years. He was a great guy and loved his wife and family very much! It always showed.

Dear Ann and Girls,
My heart goes out to each of you. I know what you are going thru. You will always remember the good times more than the bad one. Remember our trip to Alaska in l969. It was a blast. And you will remember more and and more and laugh about them.
If there is any thing that I can do for you, please do not hesitate letting me know.
God bless you all.

I was blessed to have met Mr Johnnie through Renea. I'll never forget his joking as we tried to find the right outfit for our date. He has always made a point to say hello on his way fishing and always greeted me with a hug and hey gal. He was truly a wonderful person. Sending love and prayers to all of his family!
